Spring 2022 Labour Force Survey Starts Sunday, 1st May 2022

The Spring Labour Force Survey (LFS) conducted by the Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) will begin on Sunday, 1st May 2022.

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 approximately 2,000 randomly selected households. These interviewers will exercise appropriate COVID-19 protocols using personal protective equipment (PPE).

The ESO thanks the households who have already participated in the previous surveys as well as the 2021 Population and Housing Census, and is asking for the support of the general public in this Spring 2022 exercise.

The data collected is kept in the strictest confidence as mandated by the Statistics Act (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 Individual data will not be published or used outside of the ESO and is exempted from the Freedom of Information Act.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 & Statistics Office at 516-3329, 949-0940 or visit www.eso.ky.
