International Labour Organization (ILO)


The International Labour Organization (ILO) is a United Nations agency with 180+ Member States that set labor standards and policies. The ILO publishes data related to the labor market.

Example topics covered:

  • Employment and unemployment

  • Population

  • Potential labor force

  • Labor force participation

  • Rate of labor underutilization

  • Working poverty rate

  • Annual growth rate of output per worker.

The above can be cut by sex, age, occupation, status in employment, economic activity (e.g. education, utilities, construction), rural/urban areas, and economic class.

As with all Public Domain datasets, Cybersyn aims to release data on Snowflake Marketplace as soon as the underlying source releases new data. We check periodically for changes to the underlying source and, upon detecting a change, propagate the data to Snowflake Marketplace immediately. See our release process for more details.


All Cybersyn products follow the EAV (entity, attributes, value) model with a unified schema. Entities are tangible objects (e.g. geography, company) that Cybersyn provides data on. All timeseries' dates and values that refer to the entity are included in a timeseries table. Descriptors of the timeseries are included in an attributes table. Data is joinable across all Cybersyn products that have a GEO_ID. Refer to Cybersyn Concepts for more details.

Cybersyn currently limits the geographic entities to the country and country groups covered in our geography tables.
