Salary and Compensation Research at the Library of Congress

Foreign Resources

This section does not include a large number for foreign sources because that is not the focus of this guide. However, a few basic resources for starting foreign compensation research are listed below.

Bureau of Labor Statistics

International Labor Comparisons (ILC)
Provides international comparisons of hourly compensation costs; productivity and unit labor costs; labor force, employment and unemployment rates; and consumer prices. The comparisons relate primarily to the major industrial countries, but other countries are included in certain measures. Please note that because statistical concepts and methods vary from country to country, international comparisons of statistical data can be misleading.
