Table description


This table contains quarterly and yearly figures on the economic activities where people work. The population of 15 to 74 years of age (excluding the institutionalized population) in paid employment is classified according to the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC 2008). A division by sex, age, level of education, professional status and working hours is available.

Due to changes in the survey design and the questionnaire of the Labour Force Survey (LFS), a revision of the figures for 2021 was carried out in the first quarter of 2022.
As a result, the numbers of 2021 and later will not be comparable to the years 2003-2020.

Data available from: 2003

Status of the figures:
The figures for 2021 and 2022 table are final.

Changes as of May 17, 2022:
The figures for the first quarter of 2022 have been published.

From 2021 onwards the categories ‘Empl. status: perm. with flexible hours' and ‘Empl. status: temp. with flexible hours' are stopped. From 2021 they are counted in ‘Empl. status: on-call worker' category. In addition, a new category ' Empl. status: flex, contract unknown' has been added from 2021 onwards. For the self-employed, the category ' Empl. status: other self-employed' has been removed

When will new figures be released?
New figures will be published August 17, 2022.
