The indicator reflects the number of people in the labour force expressed as a percentage of the working-age population (15 years and over). It should be noted that the labour force refers to people of working age who during the reference week meet the requirements to be included in the category of employed persons or unemployed. According to the updating data process, indicators with population projections based on 2017 Census will be gradually incorporated into the platform, for more information, see “Other comments” of this metadata.

The week (Monday to Sunday) before the period of collection. The ENE can have four or five reference weeks, depending on the month. Each week of collection has a mobile reference week that varies according to the week of collection.

Click to collapse Sampling

Sampling of the ENE has two stages and is probabilistic. The two stages refer to the First Stage Sampling Unit (UPE), which is the block (urban) or section (rural), and the Second Stage Sampling Unit (USE), which is the private occupied dwelling. Probabilistic means that the selection of the UPE in each stratum is proportional to the size of the unit in relation to the number of dwellings (USE) and that the probability of selection of the USE is equal for all dwellings within the UPE.

As part of the process of strengthening the National Labour Force Survey (ENE), which includes a new method of calibration of sample weights according to the population projections based on 2017 Census, a process of updating the platform is being carried on in order to allow INE.Stat reflects the improvements in the updated figures that are published monthly, therefore, from now on, the platform will be updated gradually to provide our users with all the relevant information. At the moment, information is left available to users according to the old calibration method, that is, population projections based on 2002 Census, with information from January-March 2010 to October-December 2019 and, the update of the disaggregation: National and regional according to sex and mobile quarter of the unemployment rate, participation rate, occupation rate and informal occupation rate.

Key statistical concept

See definitions of employed persons, unemployed, labour force, and people outside the labour force, as well as its construction using the questionnaire in the Methodological Manual.

Methodological Backgroundhttps://www.ine.cl/docs/default-source/ocupacion-y-desocupacion/metodologia/espanol/metodolog%C3%ADa-encuesta-nacional-de-empleo-ene-2020.pdf?sfvrsn=793380e9_4?len=en
Classification(s) used

(1) ICSE classification: Classification of types of occupations, based on a relationship of dependency and subordination. (2) CIIU4.cl 2012, according to CAENES: Classification used to identify the branch of economic activity of the economic unit that pays the employed person or that the employed person owns.

Estimation

TP =(Labour force/ Working age population)*100

Imputation

There is no imputation in the National Labour Force Survey.

Weights
