The EEC has been running Labour Force Surveys since 1960. The UK participated for the first time In 1973 and surveys have taken place every two years since then, so this is the fifth survey in this country. The main purpose of the survey is to provide statistics on the number of employed and unemployed and the kinds of jobs they do. Because different countries have different ways of recording these for official purposes it is difficult to make comparisons between countries in the EEC. One of the main aims of this survey is to provide this information on a strictly comparable basis for each country. The statistics are then used by the E.EC to develop social policies which will be applied to Britain and all the other countries. The UKs claims on the Social Fund of the Community, which disposes of many millions of pounds a year, are thus added by statistics from the survey. The data is also used by the SSC in deciding on grants for re-training programmes which are designed to combat unemploymen t in particular regions . This data was acquired from The Essex Data Archive with funds provided by Prof. L.N. Christofidies and the Dept. of Economics. The 1981 survey has 4 separate components. The master file contains 257,877 observations and 531 variables.
