Labour Force and World Population Growth. Bulletin of Labour Statistics.
International Labour Office, Geneva (Switzerland).
Presented in three languages (English, French, and Spanish), the document deals only with the demographic aspects of the world labor force--fully employed, underemployed, and unemployed. It includes employers, salaried employees, self-employed, wage earners, unpaid family workers, members of producer cooperatives, and members of the armed forces. As a general rule, the population figures given in this document have been taken from the United Nations demographic projections brought up to date in 1968; labor force figures correspond to ILO projections. Tables and narrative consider population and labor force figures in the context of urban and rural location, rate of growth, sex, age group, number of dependents, job tenure, and deaths. The situation in 1970 is considered, and projections are made for the year 2000. Probable changes taking place between 1970 and 2000 are also considered. A tentative estimate of the long-term growth of population and labor force by continent concludes the narrative. Additional supportive data are provided in appended tables. A summary is provided in Russian, Arabic, Chinese, Malay, and Swahili. (Much of the document's visual impact is lost in reproduced copies since a color-coding approach was used extensively in the graphics.) (AG)
