Study: EU-LFS 2007


Title European Union Labour Force Survey 2007


EU-LFS 2007 contains the Module on Accidents at work and work-related health problems. The aim of this ad hoc module is to provide a description of the occurrence of accidents at work and of non-accidental work-related illhealth and in particular.

The target population for the ad hoc module consists of persons aged 15 or more. For accidents at work the additional filter is on everybody who is working or has worked during the past 12 months. For work-related health problems the filter is on everybody who is working or has worked previously. Finally, the filter for hazardous exposure is on everybody who is working at the time of the survey administration.


Geographical Coverage

The EU-LFS 2007 covers "the 27 Member States of the Union. In addition the survey covers member states of the EEA, Iceland and Norway, Switzerland by bilateral agreement, as well as the Candidate Countr[y ...] Turkey." (Eurostat (2009): Quality report of the European Union Labour Force Survey 2007, pp. 3-4). Turkey and Malta are not included in the micro-data.

Time Period Covered

The EU-LFS 2007 "is designed as a continuous quarterly survey with interviews spread uniformly over all weeks of a quarter. Each reference week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. The first week of a year or quarter is defined as the week that includes the first Thursday of the year or the quarter.
As Croatia adopted it in 2007, Turkey and Switzerland have remained the only two countries not conducting a continuous survey. Turkey, although producing quarterly results, only covers the first week of each month, whereas Switzerland only has an annual survey carried out in the second quarter. " (Eurostat (2009): Quality report of the European Union Labour Force Survey 2007, p. 5.)
