List of countries by employment rate

This is a list of countries by employment rate, this being the proportion of employed adults in the working age. The definition of "working age" varies: Many sources, including the OECD, use 15–64 years old,[1] but the Office for National Statistics of the United Kingdom uses 16–64 years old[2] and EUROSTAT uses 20–64 years old.[3]
