SOCIAL PROTECTION MONITOR

Methodology: ILO’s Social Protection Monitor is based on media/news published online. The Monitor tracks announcements of social protection measures, defined as any policy decision that affects the functioning of a social protection system, from minor parametric adjustments to major developments and reforms, as well as social subsidies. The Monitor is a useful source for addressing information gaps and detecting global and regional trends in a timely manner. Note that the Monitor is biased given that governments do not always announce, and often underreport, contraction/adjustment measures. See more.
