Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) 2018-2019 released

The National Statistical Office (NSO) has launched the Quarterly report on Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) that ended in June 2019 and the same is available on the website of the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation. This is the second Annual Report by NSO.

Key Points:

  • PLFS was launched by NSO in April 2017 keeping in view the necessity of availability of labour force data at more regular time intervals.
  • There are two main goals of PLFS, these are:
  1. Estimation of the key employment and unemployment indicators (namely Unemployment Rate, Labour Force Participation Rate, Worker Population Ratio) in a time interval of three months for the urban areas only in the Current Weekly Status (CWS)
  2. Estimation of the employment and unemployment indicators in both usual status (ps+ss) and CWS in both urban and rural areas annually.
  • The first Annual Report (July 2017- June 2018) covered both urban and rural areas and gave an estimate of all the important parameters of employment and unemployment and was released in May 2019.
  • Under the report, the villages and urban blocks are the smallest area units taken as first-stage sampling units (FSU) in rural and urban areas, respectively.
