World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report is a global ranking of the economies, covering over 100 indicators. However, a detailed profile and extensive data tables are perhaps inadequate to explain the existing circumstances of each individual country. The labor market of Mongolia, with its sudden, high evaluation results attracted particular attention of the authors, questioning whether corresponding scores provide sufficient information to understand and define the problem solving policy. The main concern raised by this study is to explain whether and to what extend the Mongolian overall ranking was affected by Flexibility, Management, Gender issues in the labor market.
