[WINDHOEK, 11 September 2013] The National Statistics Agency (NSA) announced the kick-off of the 2013 Labour Force Survey in Windhoek today. This survey will be conducted as from 30 September-13 October 2013 at the cost of 14m Namibian dollars. The results will be published in March 2014.

According to NSA statistician-general, John Steytler, this year’s survey will entirely be conducted by the NSA unlike the previous years and will be the first one to be conducted on an annual basis. To ensure a high degree of accuracy and credibility, Steytler said the survey will cover a sample of 9'108 households whose selection will be aided by the use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).

He also said the training of trainers is complete while the training of field staff will be concluded by 13 September 2013. A total of 454 people will be employed throughout the duration of the survey.

“The NSA appreciates the efforts being made by the Government in ensuring the provision of quality statistics,” he stated, adding, “It is a major undertaking but we are confident we can achieve the desired outcome in a timely manner.”

The Cabinet has directed the NSA to conduct annual labour force surveys to provide public and private sector policymakers with up-to-date information on development in the labour market.
