            preoccupation with and monitoring of national systems of labour administration 
            led the Conference in 1966 to adopt a resolution inviting the Governing 
            Body to call special attention to governments to the importance of 
            strong labour departments in the context of economic and social development<br>

      <td> Requires the ratifying State to establish a proper co-ordinated labour 
        administration having clearly defined functions and responsibilities, 
        which shall cover the implementation of national labour policy, the preparation 
        and implementation of labour legislation, employment policy, the improvement 
        of conditions of work and services to employers' and workers' organizations. 
        The Convention is supplemented by Recommendation No. 158.</td>

      <td> <a href="C160_labourstatistics_1985.htm">Labour Statistics Convention, 1985 (No. 160)</a></td>
      <td>Requires the ratifying State to maintain a regular compilation and publication 
        of labour statistics. The subjects to be progressively covered include: 
        the economically active population; structure and distribution of employment; 
        unemployment; underemployment; average earnings; wage rates; hours of 
        work; wages; labour costs; consumer price indices; household or family 
        expenditure and income; occupational injuries or diseases; and industrial 
        disputes. Each ratifying State can undertake such obligations gradually, 
        even starting with only one subject initially. The Convention also calls 
        for the respect of international standards and guidelines, the communication 
        of relevant information to the ILO, and consultation with representative 
        organizations of employers and workers. The Convention is supplemented 
        by Recommendation No. 170.</td>
