Labour force surveys
This collection includes data derived from national labour force surveys (LFS). Labour force surveys are one of the primary national household surveys conducted by countries. They are designed with the objective to produce official national statistics on the labour force, employment and unemployment for monitoring and planning purposes. LFS are the main source behind headline indicators of the labour market for short-term monitoring as well as more structural information on the number and characteristics of the employed, their jobs and working conditions, the job search activities of those without work, etc. They are a unique source of data on informal employment, and increasingly designed to produce statistics on unpaid forms of work and other related topics through add-on modules.
