Data available on 2010

Status of the figures:

When will new figures be published?
This is not applicable anymore. The Labour Force Survey is conducted on Bonaire every other year and in 2012 for the first time also on Saba and St-Eustatius. The questionnaire was changed from 2012 onwards and because of that a new series of tables on the labour force on the Caribbean Netherlands was started.
