Methodological notes on composite indicators for monitoring working conditions

Tangian, Andranik S.

Several devices in designing composite indicators for policy monitoring and benchmarking are discussed: weighting and scaling of variables, hierarchical organization, handling rank-based variables, relief tables, survey simulation techniques which combine normative and empirical data. Some remarks are made on survey design to facilitate constructing composite indicators.
