Empstat specialise in the application of international standards on labour statistics, namely those outlined in the International Conference of Labour Statisticians (ICLS) resolutions. Includes the design of questionnaires in accordance to the ICLS standards, sampling design, cleaning and coding of datasets compliant with ICLS definitions and quality assurance. Our team also have experience in leading qualitative data collection, including key informant interviews and focus group discussions in a range of settings.
Alongside the collection of labour market information, Empstat also provide analysis on this data (including the cleaning of datasets) in addition to research. This includes the design and implementation of labour market assessment studies, labour market analyses and labour force survey reports. Our team has experience in a range of thematic areas, including labour migration, youth, gender, marginalised groups and more, as well as leading both quantitative and qualitative research and analysis.
Support for monitoring and results measurement (MRM), including logframe design, monitoring and evaluation frameworks and third party evaluation at the programme level. This includes approaches for full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs and headcount measures of employment, for private sector development and human capital development programmes and interventions. Adjustment can be made for different budgets, programme types and channels of impact (e.g. direct, indirect and induced job impacts).
While we specialise in labour market statistics and analysis, our team are experienced in a range of settings related to labour markets, including policy advice and recommendations. Accordingly, we are able to provide services related to policy and strategy for improved labour market information, as well as employment and job promotion, provided sufficient data and information is available for this to be evidence-based.
