OECD Publishing OECD Publishing is responsible for disseminating the content of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) whose mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD brings governments together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. We don’t just work with governments, but also with business, labour, academia and other civil society organisations to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. We analyse and compare data to predict future trends. We set international standards on all sorts of things, from the safety of chemicals to the quality of cucumbers. We look, too, at issues that directly affect the lives of ordinary people, like how much they pay in taxes and social security. We compare how different countries’ school systems are readying their young people for modern life, and how different countries’ pension systems will look after their citizens in old age.

This information is published in books, journals and data services. All of them are available via our global knowledge base, OECD iLibrary. OECD is one of the most innovative publishers in its field and one of the most prolific and reliable sources of comparable economic and social data.

OECD Core Values • Objective: Our analyses and recommendations are independent and evidence-based. • Open: We encourage debate and a shared understanding of critical global issues. • Bold: We dare to challenge conventional wisdom starting with our own. • Pioneering: We identify and address emerging and long term challenges. • Ethical: Our credibility is built on trust, integrity and transparency.

OECD is well known for its methodology for measuring support to agriculture in an internationally comparable way. It also conducts policy reviews and analysis on agriculture and fisheries policies issues and carries out an annual medium-term forecasting exercise. The Producer Support Estimate (PSE – a measure of support to agriculture) is a key tool developed by OECD to compare agricultural policy performance across countries and to track progress in policy reform.

Combating poverty and social exclusion remain high on the policy agenda in all countries within and outside the OECD. Providing benefits to people in need can help alleviate the worst social and economic hardship, but such policies cannot replace a comprehensive strategy of social development. Social policy work in the OECD covers a wide array of social, education and health policies implemented in a continuously changing environment of socio-demographic factors, labour markets, and technical progress.

Reflecting the globalisation of industrial activities and the intertwined nature of trade dimensions with other policy fields, OECD work on trade has shifted from an emphasis on trade in goods to a more interdisciplinary consideration of trade issues. It helps forestall trade tensions and conflicts that emerge under the pressure of ever‑intensifying competition. Trade work also encompasses the issue of export credits, trade facilitation, non-tariff measures and aid for trade.

Did you know… …that almost half of the OECD population lives in the 264 largest metropolitan areas with over 500 000 people?




320 ebooks


1 580 chapters


1 000 tables and graphs

OECD work on this subject area examines how regions, whether urban, rural, crossborder or metropolitan, contribute to national growth. This work focuses on how a place-based development model, a multi-sector policy approach that harnesses endogenous strengths and assets using networked, multi-level governance mechanisms, is best suited to achieve regional and aggregate growth outcomes. The integrated analysis of historical, cultural and socio-economic factors can explain why and how a given territory can improve its own prospects for growth and development.
