  1. Structural transformation and jobs in Timor-Leste

    Structural transformation is described as the reallocation of economic activity across broad economic sectors such as agriculture, industry and services. A key feature of structural transformation is an increase in the share of employment in industry and services with concurrent reduction of workers in the agriculture sector. Typically, a large segment of the labour force in low-income countries is engaged in subsistence agriculture.

  2. Timor-Leste labour force surveys 2010 and 2013: main trends based on harmonized data

    Since the country became independent, Timor-Leste has carried out two national labour force surveys (LFS) in 2010 and 2013 for measuring employment, unemployment and related labour market characteristics. Although the questionnaires of the two surveys were essentially identical, the data were processed differently.
