The Labour and Geographical Mobility Statistics (LGMS) is elaborated annually and refers to the first quarter of each year. It researches the relation between the employability of persons and their availability to change residence, through the joint study of the labour characteristics and the time they have resided in the municipality.

For this purpose, the LGMS includes specific variables derived from the municipal register database of the INE (population base resulting from the coordination of the Municipal Registers) to the the Economically Active Population Survey (EAPS) sample for the first quarter of each year. In this way, it is possible to relate the demographic and labour variables in the EAPS with the geographical mobility registered in the administrative source.
