SURVEY METHODOLOGY

<< Previous Section: Introduction


COVERAGE

Coverage rules are applied in the LFS which aim to ensure that each person is associated with only one dwelling, and hence has only one chance of selection. The coverage rules are necessarily a balance between theoretical and operational considerations. Nevertheless, the chance of a person being enumerated at two separate dwellings in the survey is considered to be negligible.

People who are away from their usual residence for six weeks or less at the time of interview are still included in the survey. The labour force survey is asked from Any Responsible Adult (ARA) on behalf of all members in the household aged over 15, including those who have been away for less than 6 weeks.

The coverage rules applied in the LFS also apply to respondents in the supplementary surveys.
