Labour Force Survey

This survey asks people in Northern Ireland about employment, unemployment and economic activity.  It also covers a wide range of related topics such as income, qualifications, training and disability.

Results from the Labour Force Survey feed into UK figures for economic activity and are compared to other European countries. It has been running since 1973, with quarterly results published since 1994.
