Labour Force Survey – cross-sectional quarterly data: file for research purposes

Istat releases micro data files for research purposes for the labour force survey since I quarter 2009.

The labour force survey is continuous survey; it provides information on the main labour market indicators (employment status, characteristics of the main job, work experiences, job search, etc.), with breakdown by the main socio-demographic variables.

It is worth highlighting that the survey was modified over time, in particular in 2004, when several changes were introduced concerning the technique, the methodology, and the data analysis point of view. For these reasons such files are not consistent with the microdata files for the previous periods.
