Iran has started to register data on country's workforce and employment status in a cohesive system, said the Deputy Minister of Labour and Social Affairs.
"The system will register data relating to jobs and labor market covering employed or unemployed people of the age between 15 to 64 years old," said Essa Mansouri.
"The statistics in Labor Ministry show that 471,000 new jobs were created last Iranian year [started March 21, 2018]; however, 180,000 newly created jobs are not covered by insurance," he noted.
The official emphasized that in current situation, country's industrial sector is not creating jobs.
"Last Iranian year, the industrial sector downsized by 39,000 jobs; thus, the employment policies should focus on other economic sectors," he added.
