The source writes:
Economically active population (labor force) - persons of age established to measure economic activities of population, which for the observed period are considered employed or unemployed. The number of the economically active population includes data on employed and unemployed based on the results of surveys on employment of population. The definition of the economically active population is carried out for people of 15-70 years old as follows.
The employed are persons aged 15-70 who:
The employed population does not include the persons who perform unpaid civil or voluntary work and the persons who are engaged in household chores only.
The voluntary activity is the uneconomic type of activity and has the three specific features: a) it should not be paid for; b) it is done though one's own will, and freely as compared, for instance, to term military service; c) it is done for an organization, community or a person with whom exists no kinship beyond one's own household.
Persons of working age include women aged 15-54 years and men aged 15-59. In connection with the implementation of the law on pension reform the working age population since 2012 includes women aged 55 years.
Employed in the economy are persons who in the reference period were involved in paid jobs as well as in income related self-employment either with the participation of hired employees or without any hired employees. The employed comprise persons who are temporarily out of their work, non-paid family workers as well as those in households who engaged in goods and services production for sale.
Indicators of economic activity, employment and unemployment are based on data quarterly sample surveys conducted and monthly sample survey of the economic activity of the population conducted. The unemployed population is made up of persons above specified age who are available to, but did not, furnish the supply of labor for the production of goods and services.
The LFS methodology is consistent with the ILO and EU current methodology and definitions of the main indicators for economic activity of the population. Within the framework of the labor force concept, employment has priority over any other type of economic activity/inactivity.
