Release Information

This release is based on the official results of the quarterly Czech Labor Force Survey. The survey results display information about the level and structure of employment, unemployment, and underemployment in the Czech Republic according to the recommendations and international definitions of the International Labor Organization. 

The compiling of the Labor Force Survey uses specific legislation and economic conditions to allow for minimal bias in the data collection. The source uses common reporting to estimate employment in organizations and companies, and it identifies employment in the Czech Republic by gender, age, qualification, industry, and a variety of other factors.

 The preliminary update covers the seasonally and non seasonally adjusted labor force and unemployment rate statistics, including numbers of employed and unemployed citizens in the Czech Republic. 

The main update revises the statistics in the preliminary update while also breaking down the labor force statistics by gender and age.
