Small area estimation (commune) of economic activity rate
The Structural Survey collects data every year on working life at cantonal level. The aggregated results from several surveys also make it possible to calculate these indicators down to district and urban town level.
Small Area Estimation (SAE) is intended to extend the limits of standard methods. Information on the procedure and the findings of the estimated labour participation at commune level can be found at the following link in the topic Small Area Estimation (SAE).
