SURVEY METHODOLOGY

<< Previous Section: Introduction


INTRODUCTION

The Longitudinal Labour Force Survey (LLFS) CURF is comprised of data collected from a number of different surveys in the Monthly Population Survey (MPS) program. Each survey has slightly differing methodology and practices, depending on the application and the populations targeted, but the core elements of each align with the methodology used in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS), which forms the backbone of the MPS.
