Quarterly information on the labour market presents provisional data on the employed, unemployed, and economically inactive gathered from the sample Labour Force Survey in the 3rd quarter of 2015 as compared to the results of the surveys conducted in the 2nd quarter of 2015 and 3rd quarter of 2013 and 2014.
Preliminary data. Due to the delays in compilation of the current demographic data for 2015, necessary for preparation of the updated population balance which serves as the basis for calculation of weights used in generalization of the LFS sample results,
there were reused the demographic data as of the state on 31 December 2014. Delays in compilation of demographic data on the natural movement of population were caused by the introduction of the new registration system of the civil registers and the PESEL system feeding by the Ministry of the Interior. In addition, there were delays in transmission of the data on migration to the Ministry of the Interior. Therefore, after correction of weights on the basis of updated demographic estimations, the presented LFS data for the 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2015 may be changed.
The data of the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy regarding unemployed persons registered in labour offices, vacancies reported to labour offices, and terminations due to establishments' reasons were included in the paper.
The quarterly Labour Force Survey is the main source of information on situation on the labour market. The survey covers all persons aged 15 and more who are members of the sampled households. The LFS methodology is based on definitions recommended by the International Labour Office and Eurostat. The basic criterion for division of population from the point of view of economic activity into the employed, the unemployed and the economically inactive is work, i.e. performing, having or seeking a job in the reference week.
