ILO Quantitative Platform on Social Security (QPSS)




The ILO’s Social Protection Department has developed the Quantitative Platform on Social Security (QPSS) to provide social protection systems worldwide with robust tools to support evidence-based policy analysis and reforms.

QPSS tools and corresponding training materials are accessible through national social protection agencies and institutions, as part of ILO technical support and capacity-building activities in quantitative techniques.
