Quarterly employment estimates for sectors other than agriculture are based on the Quarterly Employment Enquiry which is a postal survey. Prior to December 1992 the survey covered mainly larger employers and the tendency was to underestimate gains in employment and to overestimate losses of employment amongst smaller firm. From December 1992, the survey has been extended to cover smaller firms and the sample size has been chosen in order that estimates of total employment should be accurate to within +/- 1% of the Census total in future years. Includes estimates of numbers of full-time and part-time employees by Industrial Division and Class.
