If you have received Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) letter, your address was selected with random sampling method. All persons living in the household will have to answer general questions, while persons aged 15–89 will be asked about employment, experience when seeking job, etc.
CSB is the main performer and coordinator of the official statistical work in the country and as such is responsible for gathering data in multiple surveys across the year. In accordance with the current regulations of the European Union and the Republic of Latvia, CSB is entitled to collect and process personal data and its duty is to ensure the protection and confidentiality of the data you provide. The obtained data will be published only in aggregated form for the analysis of economic and social phenomena and processes.
The survey will be conducted in four waves with a break of few months between the interviews. Repeat interviews in households are necessary to obtain information on changes in employment. We will be grateful for your participation in the survey, as it will help reflect the real labour market situation.
