Labour Force Survey
The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey and other key labour market statistics are provided by the Office for National Statistics in their monthly statistical bulletins. The Labour Force Survey (LFS) is a survey of the employment circumstances of the UK population. It is the largest household survey in the UK and provides the official measures of employment and unemployment.
- The latest regional (including Scotland) labour market statistical bulletin and associated datasets are available from the ONS website.
- The latest UK labour market statistical bulletin and associated datasets are available from the ONS website.
- Secondary analysis of the latest data is available in the Scottish Government Labour Market Summary.
Annual Population Survey
The Annual Population Survey (APS) combines results from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the English, Welsh and Scottish Labour Force Survey boosts. The boosts increase the sample size which means the APS can provide more robust labour market estimates for local areas compared to the main LFS. Thus the APS is the primary source for information on local labour markets providing headline estimates on employment, unemployment and economic activity.
