The Compilation of Industry Statistics on Labor and Employment (CISLE), formerly known as 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, this compilation contains 14 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 2017 CISLE is the 19th issue in a series that presents the latest available data mostly with 2012-2016 as reference period. An explanatory note is included at the beginning of each section that provides clarification on the data source, data coverage and terms and definitions that will guide users of the data.
Statistical tables which had not been updated as the data are not yet available at the time of preparation of this publication are no longer included in this issue. As such, data users are advised to refer to the back issues of this publication for these statistical tables. The data series starting from 1991 are accessible in the PSA website (www.psa.gov.ph).
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.
