Data on laid-off employees are only published from the Labour Force Survey quarterly and annually

Data on the number of laid-off employees are only published from the Labour Force Survey quarterly and annually, but not monthly. Because the Survey is based on a sample, its figures on lay-offs are not sufficiently accurate for monthly reporting. Data describing lay-offs in the last quarter of 2008 and the whole of 2008 will be published in early 2009. Threat of lay-offs is not measured in the Labour Force Survey.
