From BLS Commissioner’s Corner


April 14, 2011

I would like to introduce you to a new data visualization tool for international data from BLS. The dynamic dashboards of the Division of International Labor Comparisons (ILC) allow you to visualize trends instantly. The customer simply chooses the indicator, the countries, and the years, and the charts appear. Currently, ILC has posted three dashboards that you can access as follows:

·         Productivity dashboard with international comparisons of manufacturing productivity, unit labor costs, and related trends at Choose the “Productivity Charts” link or the “Charts” tab.


·         GDP dashboard with international comparisons of GDP per capita, GDP per hour, and related measures at Choose the “GDP Charts” link or the “Charts” tab.


·         Hourly compensation costs dashboard with international comparisons of hourly compensation costs in manufacturing and related measures at Choose the “Hourly Compensation Charts” link or the “Charts” tab.


·         I also invite you to view the ILC homepage at
