Methodological changes APS-2002

The new EAPS reflects, more appropriately, the labour market

The Economically Active Population Survey (EAPS) has been modified in 2002. The changes are of a methodological nature, and affect the definitions used in the survey and the calculation process of the results: 1. The new INE population projections are used. 2. A technical improvement is introduced in the calculation of the results of the survey. 3. Lastly, the new definition of unemployment established in Commission Regulation (EC) no. 1897/2000, of 7 September 2000, is applied.
