Labour Force Survey of Singapore, December 2007

The Manpower Research and Statistics Department of the Ministry of Manpower is conducting the Labour Force Survey from 23 Nov 2007 to 7 Jan 2008. The purpose of the survey is to collect data on employment, unemployment and other economic characteristics of the population to help in the planning and formulation of manpower-related policies.

2.   A sample of 8,500 households has been selected for the survey. Data items to be collected include name, sex, age, education, marital status and employment status of each household member. The Ministry will notify households selected for the survey by post.

3.   The survey will be conducted through the Internet Household Survey System (iHSS), telephone or face-to-face interviews. The iHSS provides a fast, safe and convenient means for households to submit their information. Households with Internet access are encouraged to participate in the survey using the iHSS. Our interviewers will be conducting telephone interviews for the remaining households. If we are unable to reach the households by telephone, our interviewers will visit the households to conduct face-to-face interviews. All our interviewers will carry the Identification Card issued by the Ministry of Manpower.

4.   Selected households are kindly requested to give their co-operation and assistance to the interviewers to enable the success of the survey. All the information furnished will be kept strictly confidential and used only for compilation of statistics.
