employment to population ratio
Employment to Population Ratio

National

International

Definition

The proportion of a country’s working-age (15-64Years) population that is employed.

Method of Computation

Expressed as the number of persons in employment as a percentage of the population for the corresponding sex and age group (either working-age or youth)

Compilation Practice

ILO concentrates on bringing together information from international repositories. In other words, the KILM team rarely collects information directly from national sources, but rather takes advantage of existing compilations held by various organizations

Definition

  • The proportion of population aged 14-64 Years that is employed.

Method of Computation

  • The number of persons employed divided by total working age population multiplied by 100.

Compilation Practice

  • Uganda National Household Surveys
  • Labour Force Surveys

youth unemployment
Youth Unemployment

National

International

Definition

Proportion of the youth labour force that is unemployed. Young people are defined as persons aged between 15 and 24.

Method of Computation

Divide the total number of youth unemployed (for a country or a specific group of workers) by the corresponding labour force (in this case age group 15-24), which itself is the sum of the total persons employed and unemployed in the group.

Compilation Practice

ILO concentrates on bringing together information from international repositories.

Definition

  • Proportion of working age (15-24/18-30 Years) population without work, looking for work and available for work using a reference period of one week.

Method of Computation

  • Compiled based on the 1982 ILO Resolution that defines an unemployed person. The total number of persons unemployed is divided by the working age population multiplied by 100.

Compilation Practice

  • Uganda National Household Surveys

National

International

Definition

The total number of new entrants in the last grade of primary education (according to the International Standard Classification of Education or ISCED97), regardless of age, expressed as percentage of the total population of the theoretical entrance age to the last grade of primary

Method of Computation

The number of new entrants in the last grade of primary education, irrespective of age, is divided by the population of the theoretical entrance age to the last grade of primary, and multiply the result is multiplied by 100.

Compilation Practice

The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) produces time series based on enrolments and repeaters data reported by education ministries or national statistical offices and UN population estimates. 

Definition

  • The total number of pupils/students who successfully sat and passed end of cycle exams regardless of age, expressed as a percentage of the population at the official primary graduation age.

Method of Computation

  • Divide the number of candidates that sat and passed PLE by the 12 year old population, and multiply the result by 100.

Compilation Practice

  • Data on candidates’ final grade examinations from UNEB is analyzed and number of sitting candidates who pass examinations determined.
