The Survey on the demand for labour is conducted by a representative method on a quarterly basis. According to the scope of the survey, it covers notional economy entities and their local units employing at least 1 person. At the end of the third quarter of 2020, the number of employed persons was 3.5% higher than at the end of the second quarter of 2020. This is a different situation than that observed in the second decade of the 21st century. Until 2019, the number of employed persons in the third quarters was generally slightly lower than in the second quarters. The largest loss of employed persons between the analysed quarters occurred in 2012 (a decrease of 2.0%). The increase in the number of employed persons in the third quarter compared to the second quarter was observed only in 2014 (by 0.7%).
