Labour Force Characteristics by Industry and by Occupation (2 and 3 digits), Selected Alberta Economic Regions (Annual Average) (2000-2014)


(StatCan Product) This information product has been customized to present information on labour force characteristics by industry and by occupation (2 and 3 digits) for selected Alberta economic regions (ER) from 2011 to 2014 using annual averages.  The Canadian Labour Force Survey was developed following the Second World War to satisfy a need for reliable and timely data on the labour market. Information was urgently required on the massive labour market changes involved in the transition from a war to a peace-time economy. The main objective of the LFS is to divide the working-age population into three mutually exclusive classifications - employed, unemployed, and not in the labour force - and to provide descriptive and explanatory data on each of these.
