New Data: Kuwait - LFS (C)
Monday, 15 Apr 2019 08:10 ET
By Ian Vaughan
April 2019 -- Data Buffet now carries the labor force status quartet for Kuwait (four new censal series from 1965).

Dataset properties:

  • Measurements: Unitary count (#) or percent (%)
  • Native frequency: Censal
  • The series are stored with a native frequency of annual but are reported for census years, hence contain gaps. They are reported for 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1995, 2005, and 2011.

The series reside in the Kuwait historical catalog and include, for example:

  LW%URTUC.IKWT = Labor: Unemployment rate - Both sexes, (%)
  LWQUNTUC.IKWT = Labor: Unemployed - Both sexes, (#)

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.
