IC/ILO200519 ILO DW – EU QW data base: Utopia or reality? Create a special regional database organised in a standardised format according to the ILO decent work and EUROSTAT quality in work dimensions with the core ILO decent work and EUROSTAT quality in work indicators – 50 countries in total. The data will be regularly updated and analysed in a summary publications, allowing easy reading and dissemination. The database will be linked with relevant databases of EUROSTAT, national statistical offices of non-EU member countries and ILO Geneva. Furthermore, the above database will be linked to the ILO Panorama Laboral (Latin America), as well as South-East Asia and the Arab State data bases.
