• persons who were temporally absent from work, i.e. were formally attached to a work place, had their own enterprise (business) but did not work during the reference period due to the some reasons
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.
Within the framework of the labor force concept, employment has priority over any other type of economic activity/inactivity.
Indicators of economic activity, employment and unemployment are derived from the sample surveys of the population (households) on economic activity (referred as labor force surveys - LFS). The LFS methodology is consistent with the current ILO and EU methodology and definitions of the basic indicators for economic activity of the population.
Employment indicators are produced on the basis of the labor force surveys data that have been conducted by the state statistics offices since 1995. In 1995-1998, the surveys were carried out on a annual and quarterly basis and starting January 2004, the data was released with a monthly frequency as well.
Starting 2014, the source presents the data excluding Crimea and Sevastopol.
Data are revised due to changes in methodology, survey design and basing on results of the population census. Particularly, the recent revision was made in 2005. The basic indicators of economic activity of the population for 1999-2003 have been revised in order to make them consistent with the new demographic structure of the population which was obtained as a result of the 2001 Ukrainian population census. Further revision expected.
