This book discusses the international standards of statistics of the economically active population, and of employment, unemployment, and underemployment, which were adopted by the Thirteenth International Conference of Labour Statisticians in October 1982. The main objective of this manual is to explain the international concepts and definitions in greater detail than given in the 1982 conference resolution. The manual also provides technical guide-lines on the application of international standards for collecting data on the economically active population through household surveys. General methodological issues dealing with sampling, questionnaire design, data processing, data evaluation (of the economically active population), etc., are also elaborated in this book.
