4. Notes to the appendix tables

  • In the release Labour Force Survey 2009 - Time series data 2000-2009 (30 December 2010), the unemployment rates for higher university or doctorate level (7.8) were incorrect (Appendix table 25). The corrected data can be found in Appendix table 27 of this release.

  • Definitions of the used concepts can be found on the home page of the Labour Force Survey under “Concepts and definitions”, and in the printed annual publication and its pdf version.

  • Small figures concerning no more than 4,000 persons that are presented in the tables should be viewed with reservations because they are based on a low number of respondents.

  • Symbols used in the tables:

    Magnitude less than half of unit employed “0”

    Nil to report or data too uncertain for presentation “.”

  • Data on education concerning 2010 will only become available later.

  • Data by Regional State Administrative Agency (AVI) are available as of the beginning of 2008.

  • The category “total” of data by socio-economic group and by employer sector includes persons whose socio-economic group or employer sector is unknown.

  • Due to rounding , the sums in the tables may not always agree. Unrounded figures are used in calculating the Change column.
