The increasingly international focus of practitioners and researchers in human resource management (HRM) and industrial relations is appropriate, but also challenging. The growth of international businesses and comparative studies means that there is a growing demand for international statistics on economic and employment issues. These include matters as diverse as changes in the nature of women's involvement in paid work, the growth of part-time employment, variations in the cost and productivity of labour and trends relating to the frequency and duration of industrial disputes. The tables included here provide information on these and many other matters.
