Employment Statistics

Overview

There are two measures of employment: the number of people in employment or the number of jobs. These two concepts represent different things as one person can have more than one job. · People are classed as employed by the Labour Force Survey, if they have done at least one hour of work in the reference week. The Labour Force Survey definition of employment covers all employees, self-employed, Government training & employment schemes and unpaid family workers. The Quarterly Employment Survey and the Northern Ireland Census of Employment measure the number of employee jobs, this definition excludes all self-employed jobs.
