Abstract: In this first report of the SCEPA Labor Market Indicators (LMI) project, we introduce two new indicators designed to capture both quantity and quality dimensions of labor market performance: the SCEPA Underemployment Rate measures the share of the labor force that is unemployed, paid very low wages, or works involuntarily part-time; the SCEPA Adequate Employment Rate measures the share of the working age population employed at jobs paying above the low-wage threshold and not working involuntarily part-time.
