ABOUT THIS RELEASE

The monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS) questionnaire is currently being redesigned and is due to be implemented in March and April 2001. The last time a major redesign of the LFS questionnaire was undertaken was prior to the introduction of monthly surveys in 1978. While the current questionnaire continues to provide a wide range of relevant labour force information, there is a need to update the questionnaire to better reflect current labour market phenomena and contemporary user needs. This information paper provides background information about the questionnaire redesign including: the context and objectives of the redesign; proposed changes to existing data series and additional data that will be available; and planned testing and implementation strategies.
