  • Computer-assisted questionnaire

  • Most interviews by telephone (2 % face-to face)

  • Panel; five rotation groups

  • Ministry of Employment’s job seeker register is also used as supplementary data in calibration

Policies in publishing monthly figures

Policies in publishing monthly figures

  • Additional information: especially trends adjusted for seasonal and random variation

  • Co-operation with the Ministry of Labour’s statistical unit => closer interaction started two years ago.

  • Pre-publication-day meetings => One day before publication we have a meeting where we discuss about possible questions coming from our audience (especially from the media).

Monthly publishing during the recession

Monthly publishing during the recession

  • Recession in Finland began in late 2008

  • Annual change in GPD was -2,4 % in last quarter of 2008

  • Register based unemployment figures (Ministry of Labour) reacted faster, from November 2008.

  • LFS figures showed statistically significant annual changes (upwards) starting from February 2009.

Monthly publishing during the recession continue

Monthly publishing during the recession… continue

  • Despite small differences in annual changes, LFS and Ministry of Labour unemployment statistics have shown quite similar results during this recession.

  • Unemployment figures have grown and reasons are same in both statistics => unemployment figures have grown among men, 15 to 24-year-olds, in industries involving men (manufacturing, construction, wholesale) and in areas where these industries are strong (Southern and Western Finland).

Discussion

Discussion

  • Monthly or quartely publication ?=> I would say: monthly

  • Why ?

    • Question of profile in national LFS

    • Question of sample size

    • Question of quality => Finnish LFS is good enough for monthly publishing.
