LABOUR HOUSEHOLD SURVEYS CONTENT REVIEW AND THE LFS
These developments will result in more information being available from the LFS and a richer array of data with key measures released more frequently. They will also improve the conceptual robustness and relevance of the survey and enable critical labour market linkages that are not currently possible.
The exact details may change subject to testing and an assessment of statistical impact, to ensure that the changes will not have an adverse impact on respondent burden or on LFS estimates.
Improvements to the LFS from the content review are expected to be implemented into the collection from July 2013. Key milestones in the implementation are outlined below. Some improvements that are not dependent on changes to the survey questionnaire, such as the Longitudinal LFS CURF, may be implemented outside of the time-frames below.
Mid-to-late 2012 Development and testing
July 2013 Implementation of new monthly LFS content
Aug 2013 Implementation of new quarterly LFS content
Late 2013 Release of results of new monthly content
Late 2013 Release of results of new quarterly content
It is recognised that dissemination of the expanded content in the LFS is of considerable interest to users. As a result, a comprehensive dissemination strategy will be developed, in consultation with key users. This will consider the number and format of products, and will include microdata dissemination options.
