Labour Force Survey data content has been revised

The data content and data collection method of the Labour Force Survey have been revised as from the beginning of 2008 to comply with the EU Regulation concerning the Labour Force Survey. The data content is extended and the definitions of some concepts are revised.

For example, the definition of the employed is revised as regards persons who were absent from work during the survey week. In addition, the reporting frequency of some data changes. Further information on these revisions is available on the Labour Force Survey's Internet home page.

More information is available from the Labour Force Survey's information service
