In the publication "Principales Indicadores del Mercado Laboral," Colombia's National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE) releases monthly data on employment and unemployment, both nationally and specific to thirteen major cities.
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.
Data is subject to revisions.
