2016 Philippine Industry Yearbook of Labor Statistics

The Philippine Industry Yearbook of Labor Statistics has been developed in response to the need for comprehensive and accessible labor, employment and related statistics for industry monitoring and analysis.  Topical in approach, the Industry Yearbook contains 16 sections of time series data on employment, labor cost, wages, labor productivity, hours of work, occupational injuries, occupational diseases, labor standards enforcement, unionism and collective bargaining, strike/lockout cases, economic performance and industry performance.

The Industry Yearbook has been accessible through the internet starting 2007.  It presents data from 1991 to the latest available, mostly sourced from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), at the time of compilation.  As in the previous releases, each section begins with an explanatory note on data source, coverage and terms and definitions to guide users of the data.  Some sections have more than one part to reflect statistics based on new coverage and/or classifications.

The statistical tables are presented in Microsoft Excel format in response to the clamor of certain quarters for facility in data manipulation and presentation for their specific needs. 

The PSA extends its gratitude to the bureaus and attached agencies of the Department of Labor and Employment - the Bureau of Working Conditions, Bureau of Labor Relations, Bureau of Local Employment, National Conciliation and Mediation Board and National Wages and Productivity Commission whose cooperation has made this publication possible.

The PSA shares with these source agencies the commitment to uphold the integrity and objectivity of the statistics in this publication.  Further, the PSA will continue to adopt innovative approaches in the presentation and dissemination of labor and employment statistics.
