Labour statistics is used to produce socio-economic data which are vital tools in enhancing the country’s ability to properly plan and monitor development of its people, achieve national objectives and fulfill regional and international obligations. All labour statistics are fed into the labour market information system.
Labour Force Survey (LFS) data are used to produce standard labour market indicators such as employment and unemployment rates and participation rate. Additionally, LFS also provides employment estimates by industry, occupation, public and private sectors, hours worked and much more. These are all cross-classified by a variety of demographic characteristics such as age, sex and geographical location.
