In the publication "Principales Indicadores del Mercado Laboral," Colombia's National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE) releases monthly labor force status, employment by industry level, and employment by industry share; for the country, a composite of 13 major cities, the national capital region, and the national capital district.
Data are collected by a monthly survey, Gran Encuesta Integrada de Hogares (GEIH).

DANE conducts the Continuous Household Survey (ECH) on labor force, income, and expenditure to produce demographic and socio-economic statistics. The survey samples more than 44,000 households in 13 cities and municipal townships.
In December 2005, new questions were added to the survey for a more complete analysis of a single household. Continuity and comparability was maintained with the adjustment in methodology.
DANE uses standards set by the International Labour Organization (ILO) to define population classifications.
The reference week is the week prior to the one when the survey is conducted. It is a complete calendar week from Monday to Sunday.
The source reports select variables for a 13-city/metro area aggregate (geo code ICOL_M13A) which comprises: Bogotá, Medellín, Valle de Aburrá, e de Aburrá, Cali, Yumbo, Barranquilla , Soledad, Bucaramanga, Floridablanca, Girón, Piedecuesta, Manizales, Villamaría, Pasto, Pereira, Dosquebradas, La Virginia, Ibagué, Cúcuta, Villa del Rosario, Los Patios, El Zulia, Villavicencio, Montería, and Cartagena.
We produce SA counterparts for: monthly labor force, for the total-country and 13-city geos. Monthly and quarterly labor force and unemployment rate for the capital.
In 2022, the monthly LFS results were benchmarked to CNPV 2018. This was the first national census since 2005.
