According to STATC Luxembourg, the employment trend and structure can be charted with the help of different statistical sources using distinct definitions and concepts: - the general population census and the labour force surveys (LFS) which only cover the resident population; - the social security files, the national accounts (employment by branches of activity), all three of which also include the cross-border workers.
The unemployment figures relate to registered unemployment as defined by the Administration de l'emploi [Department of Employment] (ADEM). They provide information on job seekers and job offers, placements, those receiving unemployment benefit and job seekers out of work according to different breakdowns (sex, age groups, nationality, level of education, and period of unemployment).
Data covers all resident employees and cross-border commuters working in Luxembourg. Data excludes all persons residing in Luxembourg but working abroad (cross-border commuters working outside and international civil servants such as the civil service of the EU and other European institutions). Data excludes the majority of employees registered at social security system files and working in water transport: Maritime flag, Rhine boatmen (cf. Note de conjoncture 3-05 pp.50-52).
Classification is possible by:
Recording basis: number of employed persons at the end of the month.
Seasonal adjusted adjustments are made by TRAMO-SEATS.
Domestic employment refers to the employment of residents and non-residents working on the domestic territory (within the country).
