For Singapore, a quarterly labor force survey, with standard measures (labor force, employment, unemployment, unemployment rate), detail for residents, vacancies, and retrenched workers.
Survey coverage includes private households on the main island of Singapore, but excludes (a) workers living in construction worksites, dormitories and workers' quarters at the workplace and (b) persons commuting from abroad to work in Singapore. Estimates of the total labor force synthesize data on residents and on the foreign workforce, obtained from the survey and from administrative records, respectively.
The survey covers a sample of 10,200 households every month. Respondents can complete the survey on-line via the internet, by telephone, or by face-to-face interviews.
The reference period is the week preceding the date of the survey interview.
In NSA terms, we compute labor force and employment as identities from unemployment and the unemployment rate. The unemployment rate is reported in seasonally adjusted terms, but we construct SA counterparts for the remaining three measures.
