Labor Force Survey Report


Overall employment situation: The results of the October 2015 LFS1 round indicated that decent work gains have been achieved particularly in terms of generating quality employment. While employment expanded only by 0.4% (+163,000), year-on-year, the rate of vulnerable employment went down from 39.0% to 37.5%. The decline of vulnerable workers was also accompanied by a decline in both unemployment rate (5.7% from 6.0%) and underemployment rate (17.6% from 18.7%). Further, part-time employment slightly eased by 3.2% to 13.328 million from 13.762 million.
