The BSS urges the public to actively participate in the exercise, and assures that all information will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
The CLFSS is the quarterly collection of current information on various labour force characteristics, as well as income and expenditure data, gathered from a sample of households across Barbados.
This information is then used to determine employment and unemployment levels in the island, coupled with the distribution of skills/professions in the different sectors of the economy; all of which leads to the provision of statistics for timely and necessary social and economic planning.
