The International Labour Organization provides a listing and contact information for many international labor force surveys. Princeton collects many micro-level datasets on income and labor. See the Data and Statistical Services page for a sample of them.

The OECD Labour Force Statistics in OECD Countries: Sources, Coverage and Definitions document includes tables that summarize "key characteristics of the data which are used to compile the statistics on employment and unemployment in OECD countries."

The European Union Labour Force Survey is conducted in all Member States of the European Union, 4 candidate countries and 3 countries of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). At the moment, the LFS microdata for scientific purposes contain data for all Member States, as well as data for Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
