ABOUT THIS RELEASE
A redesigned Labour Force Survey (LFS) questionnaire will be implemented in April 2001. This is the first major redesign of the questionnaire since the inception of the monthly survey in February 1978. This information paper will provide users of labour force statistics with information about the redesigned LFS questionnaire, including the changes and additions to labour force statistics resulting from the questionnaire redesign. Changes to Labour Force output products to be introduced from April 2001 will be advised, as well as arrangements for the provision of revised historical data and new data items that will be collected in the new questionnaire.
