The Agency on Statistics is conducting the Labour Force Survey

Labour Force Survey on Employment - is a national survey to obtain the complete and accurate information with regard to the situation on the labor market in the Republic of Tajikistan. The Labour Force Survey is carried out in the framework of the Project "National Strategy for Development of Statistics", with the support of the World Bank and the consulting assistance of the International Labour Organization.

This survey is being conducted by the Agency for Statistics under the President of the Republic in 272 census areas in 4080 households which are randomly selected through the interviewing members of the households at the ages from 12 to 75 years old.
