"The Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) will commence the 2015 Fall Labour Force Survey (LFS) on Sunday October 4th."
The Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) will commence the 2015 Fall Labour Force Survey (LFS) on Sunday October 4th.
The LFS, which is implemented by the ESO seeks to collect economic and demographic data on the employed and unemployed persons in the Cayman Islands, as well as those who are not in the labour force.
In October 2014, the LFS showed the labour force comprising 39,582 persons, of which 37,723 were employed while 1,859 were unemployed. The unemployment rate was estimated at 4.7 percent.
Trained interviewers from the ESO will visit a total of 1,415 randomly selected sample households in the three Islands over a four-week period. The enumerators will also administer a questionnaire on behalf of the Government Information Service and Radio Cayman.
Once again, the ESO appeals to the public to give its full cooperation to the interviewers and to provide the necessary information, which will be collected under the Statistics Law (2011 Revision). The interviews are confidential, and no individual data will be used for publication or disclosed to parties outside of the ESO. ESO survey data are exempt from Freedom of Information.
