Centre to include informal sector in quarterly employment survey

by Nidhi Bhati

The central government is planning to expand the scope of the establishment-based quarterly employment survey (QES) by including informal sector, a senior government official told Economic Times. The move will help the government assess the true picture of the employment scenario in the country. In the last quarterly survey, only 12,000 institutions were included. With the proposed change, around 75,000 institutions across the country will now be included in the survey. In addition, the area framework survey (AFS) will also be extended to institutions with less than 10 staff members. Earlier, for the quarterly employment survey, only institutions with 10 or more staff were included in the AFS.
