  • SUMMARY
    Since 1989, the Korea Labor Institute has published wage statistics, first in Statistics on Wages, then in KLI Labor Statistics, as a way to provide the basic data set needed for wage bargaining. However, demand has been growing from industrial relations managers, policymakers, academia, and the general public for broader labor statistics that include employment and industrial relations. To meet the needs of these stakeholders, in 1992 the KLI revised and expanded the former Statistics on Wages as KLI Labor Statistics to provide statistical data not only on wages but on labor in general.

    Recent changes in labor have led to significant adjustments in the required statistics as well. Keeping abreast with the changes, in 2008 the KLI published Labor in Korea 1987?2006: Looking through the Statistical Lens, an overview of the status of and challenges in the labor market and industrial relations in the past 2 decades. Furthermore, KLI Labor Statistics was overhauled to focus more on the key issues of the labor market and industrial relations. Each of the key issues provides not only major economic statistics but also in-depth labor statistics indicators, to enable a more structured understanding of the labor market and industrial relations in Korea.
