Présentation de l'opération

Organisme producteur :


- Division Synthèse et Conjoncture du Marché du Travail  - Direction des Statistiques Démographiques et Sociales;

- Mission Estel - Direction régionale du Nord-Pas-de-Calais.

Type d'opération :

Administratives sources on employment

Objectifs :

The aim of the new Localised Employment Estimates (Estel) system is to use a synthesis of data from administrative sources to produce localised estimates of the employment level. This composite approach will ensure coherency between the different geographical scales (France, region, department, employment area) and the sectors identified in the classification of activities.

Estel aims to cover employment in its entirety, paid (in the workplace and from home) and self-employed (in the workplace), and by specific sector of activity.

This method gives the total number of people in employment as of December 31st, using a definition of employment similar to that used by the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Historique :

Localised Employment Estimates (Estel) were produced for the first time, on the situation as of 31/12/2007.

Méthodologie :

For employees:

Estel uses the 'full format' Annual Declarations of Social Data (DADS) (stricto sensu DADS complemented by information from the Public Service Employees Information System - SIASP - and data from private individual employers).

For self-employed workers:

The sources used are the files of the Agricultural Social Mutual Society (MSA) for self-employed agricultural workers and the files of the Central Agency of Social Security Organisations (ACOSS) for self-employed workers in sectors other than agriculture.

The use of individual data allows direct processing of cases of multiple employment by counting each person solely for their main job.

The dissemination levels are as follows for employees:

- Level A88 of the NAF rev. 2 for the national level (except Mayotte Island);

- Level A38 of the NAF rev. 2 for geographical levels: regions and departments (Metropolitan France and overseas departments);

- Level A5 of the NAF rev. 2 for areas of employment (Metropolitan France and overseas departments).

Estimates of self-employment can be disseminated in groupings of 5 sectors of the classification of activities, covering the standard geographical levels: department, region, France (except overseas departments, for which the figures are not broken down by sector of activity).

Only the total figures of self-employed are releasable by employment area.Annual localised employment estimates provide baseline levels of year-end for the quarterly localised employment estimates.
