OECD Benefits and Wages



The OECD Benefits and Wages database is part of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and offers comparable statistics on replacement rates for unemployed people and income levels in various household situations. In addition, it offers Tax-Benefit Models, for the calculation of gross to net incomes. Furthermore, the database contains country-specific descriptions of the tax and benefits systems. Data is available for 34 OECD countries between and 6 non-OECD countries between 2001 and 2015. Here we focus on indicators and statistical data.
