  1. In two countries, Japan and New Zealand, membership rates are higher than coverage rates. This
  2. pattern appears to arise from a feature of ICTWSS adjusted coverage rate data that we use here. As
  3. mentioned in the review of the ICTWSS data in the preceding section, the adjusted coverage rate is
  4. calculated after excluding from the calculation workers who are not legally entitled to collective
  5. bargaining (for example, some public-sector workers in some countries). As a result the workforce
  6. used in the coverage calculation can, in some cases, be smaller than the workforce used in the
  7. membership calculation (which includes all wage and salary employees).
