      The OECD FSE database is intended to be the best source of information on fisheries policies in OECD members and participating non-OECD economies. It is designed to monitor and quantify developments in fisheries policy, to establish a common basis for policy dialogue among countries, and to provide economic data to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of policies. These tables report country programmes data aggregated according to the main categories presented in the FSE Manual. More detailed documentation on country programmes can be found in country-level metadata; more data on country programmes can be found in the full dataset (Excel Format - link provided below). Statistics are organized in pivot tables to make possible cross-country comparisons and to filter disaggregated policy-level data by policy implementation criteria and country.

      The sources for this database are mainly census data, from the 2000 round of censuses. Census data were used for 22 countries. Countries not taking periodic censuses but keeping population registers have provided data extracted from these registers; this is the case for four countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. For some countries, not all themes covered in the database are present in the national census or register. Labour force surveys, provided by Eurostat and averaged over the period 1998-2002, have been used to fill the gaps where possible.

      The OECD's quarterly national accounts (QNA) dataset presents data collected from all the OECD member countries and some other major economies on the basis of a standardised questionnaire as well as countries' own definitions and classifications. It contains a wide selection of generally seasonally adjusted quarterly series most widely used for economic analysis from 1960 or whenever available: - GDP expenditure and output approaches (current prices and volume estimates); - GDP income approach (current prices); - Gross fixed capital formation (current prices and volume estimates) broken down separately by type of asset or product and by institutional sector; - Disposable income and Real disposable income components; - Saving and net lending (current prices); - Population and Employment (in persons); - Employment by industry (in persons and hours worked); - Compensation of employees (current prices); - Household final consumption expenditure by durability (current prices and volume estimates). The main purpose of this dataset is to provide relevant, reliable, consistent, comparable and timely quarterly national accounts for OECD member countries, some non-member countries and some area totals for analytical purposes. All the OECD member countries compile their accounts according to the 2008 SNA. The non-member countries which are still producing national accounts according to the 1993 SNA will switch to the new 2008 SNA over the coming months/years. This will allow the improvement of cross-countries comparability.

      The OECD indicators of employment protection are synthetic indicators of the strictness of regulation on dismissals and the use of temporary contracts. For each year, indicators refer to regulation in force on the 1st of January. The indicator of strictness of employment protection - collective dismissals (additional provisions) - measures additional costs and procedures involved in dismissing more than one worker at a time (compared with the cost of individual dismissal). It incorporates 4 data items. For more information and full methodology, see www.oecd.org/employment/protection. Other Aspects Recommended uses and limitations The indicator for collective dismissal measures additional costs and procedures involved in dismissing more than one worker compared with the costs of individual dismissal. As such, it should not be used in isolation from the indicator of strictness of employment protection - individual dismissals (regular contracts).

      The OECD indicators of employment protection are synthetic indicators of the strictness of regulation on dismissals and the use of temporary contracts. For each year, indicators refer to regulation in force on the 1st of January. Version 1 of the indicator of strictness of employment protection - individual and collective dismissals (regular contracts) - does not incorporate all the data items of version 3 and, in particular, does not incorporate regulation of collective dismissals. You should only use version 1 if you need data for years for which neither version 2 nor 3 are available.
