The Paris Group is a "city-group" created under the auspices of the United Nations at
the beginning of 1997. Its broad topic of interest is "labour and compensation".
It is an informal exchange group. Participants are labour statisticians belonging to
National Statistical Institutes of International organizations (OECD, ILO, Eurostat).
The last meeting of the group took place in Budapest, on 15-17 May 2006. This meeting will be devoted to reviewing a draft ICLS Resolution on working time measurement and further discussion on ageing labor force.
Previous meetings of this group have taken place, successively in Paris (1997), London (1998) , Paris (1999), Orebr÷ (2000), London (2003) and Lisbon (2004).
Since the end of 2002, activities of the group are coordinated by a bureau.
The bureau associates representatives from two international organizations (OECD and Eurostat) and from four National Statistical Institutes (INSEE, ONS, Statistics Sweden, Hungarian Central Statistical Office).
The secretary of this bureau is shared by INSEE , OECD and ONS .
