The Canadian Labour Force Survey
(LFS) is a source of monthly estimates of employment and unemployment. Following each decennial census, the LFS has undergone a sample
redesign to reflect changes in population characteristics and to respond to changes in the information needs to be satisfied by the survey
. The redesign program following the 2001 census culminated with the introduction of a new sample
at the end of 2004. This report is a reference on the methodological and operational aspects of the LFS, covering stratification, sampling
operations, weighting, estimation and data quality.
