It also provides data on the professions, on the activity of women and young people, working hours and casual employment. It provides a clearer vision of the situation of the unemployed and changes in working situations. Since 2003, the Labour Force Survey has been quarterly and the data has been collected from a sample of households on an ongoing basis each week in the course of the quarter.
