The source writes:
The main source of employment data is National Labor Force Survey (Sakernas). This survey is specifically designed to collect information on labor force statistics. Previously, the collection of such data was integrated with other surveys, such as National Socio-Economic Survey (Susenas), Population Census (SP), and Inter-censal Population Survey (SUPAS).
The first Sakernas was conducted in 1976, then conducted anually during the period 1977-1978. During 1986-1993, Sakernas was conducted quarterly in all provinces in Indonesia, only since 1994 until 2001 Sakernas was conducted yearly, everyÂ August of the year. During the period 2002-2004, besides a yearly Sakernas, BPS also conducted a quarterly Sakernas. During the period 2005-2010, Sakernas has been conducted in semester period, i.e February (Semester I) and August (Semester II).
In 2011 Sakernaswas conducted back on a quarterly basis which is: February (First Quarter), May (Second Quarter), August (Third Quarter), and November (Fourth Quarter). A Quarterly Sakernas is aimed to monitor the prompt indicators of Indonesian labor market which referred to the Key Indicators of the Labor Market (KILM) recommended by ILO (the International Labor Organization). The results of Sakernas for first quarter, second quarter , and fourth quarter was presented at the province level (sampel size 50,000 households). The results of Sakernas for the third quarter was published up to regency/municipality level, as the sample size was quite big around 200,000 households, that consist of 50,000 households from quarterly sample and 150,000 households were addition sample package.
Data is revised when new data becomes available.
