Labour Force Survey Caribbean Netherlands

Are you in paid employment? Are you retired? Are you taking a training course? You do not have a job? Or are you perhaps doing volunteer work? These kinds of questions are covered in the Labour Force Survey Caribbean Netherlands. A survey which is conducted once every two years on Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba. The results of the survey provide essential information for, among others, the Central Government and other public organisations in the islands.

Why this survey?

We use this survey to collect statistics on, among others, employment, the employed labour force, unemployment and the level of education on Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba. These statistics are essential for making policy on the islands. Local governments can use these statistics but also for instance ministries such as Sociale Zaken en Werkgelegenheid (Social Affairs and Employment) and Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap (Education, Culture and Science). 

Why have I been chosen?

CBS has randomly selected a small number of people to invite to the survey. The addresses of the people we invited are spread across each island. Not every resident can be involved in this survey. That is why your participation is very important: you represent a large number of other people on your island. 

Your data are safe

The CBS handles your data with care. Your personal data will be separated from your responses. Please refer to the web page Privacy for information on how we handle your data.


With your participation in the Labour Force Survey, you may win an Gift Card worth $ 100. If you participated in the online survey, you will see immediately at the end of the questionnaire whether you are the winner. You will be contacted soon afterwards. The letter you received from CBS will tell you until when you can take part in the survey. The winners will be selected entirely at random. This means that no specific personal characteristics are taken into account in the draw.
