Fall 2020 Labour Force Survey Starts 27 September

The Fall Labour Force Survey (LFS) conducted by the Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) will begin on Sunday, 27 September 2020.

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

Trained interviewers with ESO ID cards will administer the surveys to a total of 1,500 randomly selected households. These interviewers will exercise appropriate COVID-19 protocols using personal protective equipment (PPE).

The ESO thanks the households that have already participated in the previous surveys, and is asking for the support of the general public in this Fall 2020 exercise.

The data collected is kept in the strictest confidence as mandated by the Statistics Law (2016 Revision). Individual data will not be published or used outside of the ESO and is exempted from the Freedom of Information Act.

For further information on any aspect of the survey or results of previous surveys, contact the Economics and Statistics Office at 516-3329, 949-0940 or visit
