For Thailand, survey-based labor force status measures and employment by industry.
Thailand's labor force statistics are tripartite: employment, unemployment, and "seasonal unemployment" a.k.a. "seasonally inactive labor force." The latter pertains to the large agricultural workforce (about one-third of total employment) which is cyclically unemployed during each dry season (November to May).
The survey is conducted simultaneously for all surveyed units nationwide during days 1 to 12 of each month. Data are collected by NSO officers through interview with head or member of the household units participated in the survey. Data compilation is based on weighted average of sampled data, the details of which appear in the NSO’s website under the topic “Labour Force Survey”.
Employment is classified by UN ISIC Rev. 4.
