National Statistics Quality Review (NSQR) Series (2) Report Number 1: Review of Labour Force Survey

Released 21 February 2014 – published by the Office for National Statistics.

Message from Glen Watson, Director General

I am pleased to announce the publication of the first review to be undertaken in the re-established programme of NSQRs. The Labour Force Survey is a multi-purpose survey with the primary aim of providing good-quality labour market outputs and is widely used across government and beyond. This Review has deemed the survey fit for these purposes.

The Review has, however, made a number of recommendations which would further enhance the survey and its outputs. ONS is currently producing an implementation plan and, subject to sufficient funding, will undertake these recommendations over the next 12 to 24 months. Users will be fully engaged throughout this process.
