The General Household Survey is a continuous sample survey to collect information on the labour force, unemployment and underemployment. This quarterly publication provides analysis on labour force participation, unemployment and underemployment with tables and charts showing the characteristics of the labour force. Statistics on hours of work and employment earnings of the employed and underemployed persons are also included.
The text of those PDF publications for issues of First Quarter 2001 and before were scanned from its printed version and then converted to electronic text using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software. Because of the age and condition of the original printed copy, the OCR may not recognise certain characters or figures accurately. Caution should therefore be taken when searching or copying text from these PDF publications.
