BVI Government Launches Labour Force Survey


From January 19, 2015, the BVI government will conduct a month long labour force survey in the Virgin Islands, working in partnership with the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Secretariat.

By words of the Director of the Central Statistics Office, Raymond Phillips, this survey provides estimates of employment and unemployment, which are important indicators of economic stability. The survey results will be used to produce employment and unemployment rates, as well as their estimates by industry, private and public sectors, occupation and hours worked.

The labour force survey is funded with resources from the 10th European Development Fund, also support and assistance is provided by the International Labour Organisation and by the EU under the Economic Integration and Trade of the OECS Region project.
