The ongoing construction of a Labour Register is greatly enhancing the labour statistics either due to the production of output directly or by constituting a coordination framework able to provide a much greater coherence to the entire system for labour statistics. The setting up of such a register in Italy is extremely challenging since it is based on a plurality of administrative sources.

Some pillars of the register: the construction of a set of classifications and coding rules to convert administrative standards into statistical classifications; the definition of the main statistical unit of the register, the job position; the set of measures on labour input to fulfil either directly or indirectly a variety of statistical needs.
