By Annie Kao
May 2019 -- Data Buffet now carries the labor force status measures for Zambia (three new quarterly series from 2017, three new annual series from 2005).

Dataset properties:

  • Measurement: Unitary count of persons (#)
  • Adjustment: 
    • Quarterly: Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
    • Annual: Not applicable
  • Native frequencies and start dates: 
    • Quarterly from 2017Q1
    • Annual from 2005

The series reside in the historical catalog (Zambia » Labor and Wages » Labor force status) and include, for example:

  • LWQLFTUQ.IZMB = Labor force - Both sexes, (#, NSA) - quarterly
  • LWQUNTUA.IZMB = Unemployed - Both sexes, (#) - annul

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.
