The ILO unemployed are persons aged 15 to 70 (registered and unregistered at the State Employment Service) who meet the following three conditions:
The category of the unemployed also includes the persons who were not seeking a job because they have already found it and reached an agreement on the start of work during a certain period of time and undergo training by an assignment of the State Employment Service.

Population coverage: Persons covered by the survey include the resident population aged 15 to 70 years living in households.

Source data collection programs
The unemployment indicators are derived from the LFS that has been conducted by the state statistics offices since 1995. In 1995/1998 the survey was carried out just once a year, in 1999/2003 each quarter during the last month of each quarter, and since 2004 it is conducted on a monthly basis by the SSCU.
The objective for the conduct of the survey is to obtain information about the composition and structure of the labor force, measure employment and the population activity trends as well as identify the real level of unemployment which incorporates the general supply of labor and is used a an important indicator to analyze the current situation in the country's economy. The survey data permit to estimate the real volumes of and changes in labor supply on Ukraine's labor market, and analyze its development trends.
There is no seasonal adjustment of data.
Data are revised if there are changes in methodology, program to conduct the survey and basing on the population census data.
