Fall Labour Force Survey to take place this month

The Fall Labour Force Survey (LFS) that seeks to collect data on employed and unemployed persons in the Cayman Islands, as well as those who are not in the labour force, will be conducted at the end of this month.

The LFS is conducted by the Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) and will begin on Sunday, September 27 2020. The data collected is kept in the strictest confidence as mandated by the Statistics Law (2016 Revision). Individual data will not be published or used outside of the ESO and is exempted from the Freedom of Information Act.

Trained interviewers with ESO ID cards will administer the surveys to a total of 1,500 randomly selected households.

Interviewers will exercise appropriate COVID-19 protocols using personal protective equipment (PPE).

The ESO thanks the households that have already participated in the previous surveys, and is asking for the support of the general public in this Fall 2020 exercise.

For further information on any aspect of the survey or results of previous surveys, contact the Economics and Statistics Office at 516-3329, 949-0940 or visit
