- Surveys of economically active population, employment, unemployment and underemploymentpdf - 7.5 MB
Surveys of the economically active population should, in principle, cover the entire population irrespective of activity status, sex, marital status, ethnic group, etc. In practice, however, certain restrictions may be necessary. In this respect, two considerations should be emphasised. The first involves determining the scope of the survey population, i.e. the population which is to be represented by the survey (total or civilian population, including or excluding the institutional population, etc.). The second involves determining the scope of the population of interest, i.e. the population for which inquiry on economic activity is meaningful (setting age limits, including or excluding categories of disabled persons, etc.).
