The labour force consists of those who are actively prepared to make their labour available during any particular reference period for producing goods and services that are included within the production boundary of the SNA. The labour force is further divided into those who are employed and those who are unemployed. Thus the population of the country can be subdivided into three categories; employed, unemployed and not in the labour force. A person’s status depends on their activity (or lack of it) during a particular reference period (usually a week).
Preliminary data will be updated in next release.
