The Compilation of Industry Statistics on Labor and Employment (CISLE), formerly known as Philippine Industry Yearbook of Labor Statistics (PIYLS), 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 turnover, terminations, labor cost, wages, labor productivity, hours of work, labor standards enforcement, occupational injuries, occupational diseases, unionism and collective bargaining, strike/lockout cases, economic performance and industry performance.
The CISLE 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. An explanatory note is appended at the beginning of each section clarifying the data source, data coverage and terms and definitions to guide the data users. 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.
