For Portugal, a quarterly labor force survey with detail by sex and subnational area.
The main purpose of the Labour Force Survey is to characterize the population in terms of the labour market. It is a quarterly sample survey, addressed to families occupying the same dwelling in the national territory, which makes available quarterly and annual data. The information is obtained directly, though computer-assisted interview, by using a mixed data collection mode: the initial interview is done face-to-face by an interviewer visiting the household and the other five interviews are done by telephone, if certain requirements are met. Published data were calibrated, based on independent estimates of the population, calculated from the definitive results of the 2001 Census.
For the LFS quartet at the national geo level, we back-extend history to 1998, and construct seasonally adjusted counterparts.
