AfDB publishes major labour force statistical guidebook

The guidebook deals with the concepts and definitions of the economically active population (EAP); presents methods for analysing data from labour force surveys, from descriptive analysis used in the production of a survey report to analysis of labour force structures and trends that are particularly useful in analytical studies; and discusses methods for assessing the quality of a labour force survey.
