The 2017 Occupational Wage Survey for Households with Employees Commences on November 16

The Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) has commenced the conduct of the Occupational Wage Survey (OWS) 2017 among businesses and government departments. Beginning on Thursday (November 16th), trained ESO survey workers will be administering the OWS to households with employees.

The OWS for households seeks to collect data on employment and remuneration. Questions on employee qualifications, immigration status, skills, number of hours worked, and type of employment will also be asked.

The OWS is confidential in accordance with the Statistics Law (Revision 2016). Householders will not be asked to write their names or their employees’ names on the questionnaires. ESO individual survey data are exempt from Freedom of Information (FOI) requests.  Only aggregate data will be available to users of data including the Ministry of Human Resources, private sector companies and HR associations that may find the data sets useful for compensation review.

The survey can also be completed by filling-up paper forms or electronically by downloading the forms from the ESO website www.eso.ky
