Release Information

The Labour Force Survey (LFS) is a major survey conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics among households. The survey follows the development of the labour force in Israel, its size and characteristics, as well as the extent of unemployment and other trends. This dataset covers various LFS indicators.

The survey population includes the entire permanent population aged 15 and over.

The sample drawn each year is allocated to four groups, known as panels. The panels areintroduced into the survey investigation in four consecutive quarters, one panel in each quarter beginning with the last quarter of the calendar year in which the sample is drawn. Each panel is investigated four times according to the following pattern: the first quarter of the investigation (investigation number 1), the following quarter (investigation number 2), a break of two quarters and two more investigations in the following two quarters (investigations 3 and 4, respectively) that are parallel to those of the first two investigations, a year later.

At the stage of planning the yearly sample, the sampling fraction, expressing the relationship between the planned sample size and the population size of that year, is determined. The sampling fraction is determined according to the actual size of the samples in previous quarters, in relation to the desired size and also by the rate of growth of the population.

Most of the final sampling units are dwellings, which are sampled in a two-stage method. In the first stage, localities are sampled, with probability proportional to size. In the second stage, dwellings are sampled in the sampled localities, so that the final sampling probability of the dwelling is equivalent to the sampling fraction of that year. The sampled dwellings are placed in sampling “portions” of about 10 dwellings and each portion is allocated to a panel.
