CBS starts labour force survey in St. Eustatius, Saba, Bonaire | THE DAILY HERALD

SABA/ST/EUSTATIUS–From the end of September until the end of November, Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS) will conduct a Labour Force Survey (LFS) in Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba.

Interviewers of CBS will visit randomly selected households to administer a questionnaire.

The Labour Force Survey is a sample survey conducted by CBS among households every two years. In this survey, CBS measures labour market developments in the Caribbean Netherlands.

One of the most important features in the LFS is the unemployment rate indicating the percentage of the labour force that is looking for a job. Other important results are the participation rate, the level of education, profession and working hours.

To gain a better understanding of labour market developments in Bonaire, Statia and Saba, CBS kindly requests all selected households to participate in the survey.

For this survey a total of 890 addresses were randomly selected in Bonaire, 558 in Statia and 557 in Saba.

CBS is obligated by law to process the collected information strictly confidentially. All interviewers have a CBS identification badge and must identify themselves upon request.
