Sunday April 15th 2018 Marks the Start of the Spring Labour Force Survey

The Spring Labour Force Survey (LFS) conducted by the Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) begins on Sunday, 15 April 2018.

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. 

Approximately 1,500 randomly selected households are scheduled for participation in this survey. Trained interviewers will administer an electronic questionnaire.    

The ESO is asking for the support of the general public in this 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 Individual data will not be published or used outside of the ESO and is exempted from the Freedom of Information Act.
