Labour Force Survey Annual Report Summary 2018


The LFS Annual Report Summary is the largest regular household survey in Northern Ireland, providing a rich source of information on the labour force using internationally agreed concepts and definitions. It is a quarterly sample survey and is therefore subject to sampling error, which decreases as the sample size increases. The Annual Report Summary uses the annual dataset which comprises responses from four consecutive quarters of the LFS and thus contains 60% more records than the quarterly databases.
