    where

    There are many ways our social statistics underestimate the degree of labor-market-related hardship.

    does it need a 'where' after 'ways?'
    thanks

    I wouldn't use "where"; I would use 'that".

    thanks,
    so you mean 'that our.....' here is a relative clause?
    but what does the 'that' refer to?

    thanks

    "That" is just a conjunction. It is used to connect the subordinate clause to a noun (ways).
