The LFS seeks to collect data on the employed and unemployed persons in the Cayman Islands, as well as those who are not in the labour force. 

The last completed LFS was the October 2015 LFS which showed the labour force comprising of 40,138 persons of which, 39,138 were employed while 1,732 were unemployed. The unemployment rate was estimated at 4.2 percent.

Trained interviewers from the ESO will visit a total of 1,403 randomly selected sample households in the three Islands over a four-week period. The enumerators will also administer a questionnaire on the community’s attitudes on older persons on behalf of the Ministry of Community Affairs, Youth and Sports.
