The Labour Force Survey is a household survey which collects relevant information about Bermuda’s workforce and economic activity. The information will be used to update key labour market indicators such as employment and unemployment statistics.

The latest Labour Force Survey is currently ongoing with telephone and in-the-field interviews. Only selected homes are required to participate in the survey.
