Methodological Notes

In addition to the initial calculation of the employment number for the month of March 2020, the published monthly results on the acquisition activity for the year 2019, and for the months of January and February 2020 were re-calculated. From the recalculation of the monthly results, a rate of change compared to the previous year, which is at the aggregate level, by 0.1 percentage points in February 2020, by 0.2 percentage points lower than the previous calculations resulted in the September and December 2019 and January 2020.

The employment figures from the employment accounts and the labour force survey differ. The deviations are due to the different concepts (national and domestic concept) of the two statistics. For more information on the reasons behind the differences between labour force survey and employment accounts can be found in the Explanatory notes to the statistics.

Employed and unemployed persons are counted according to the employment status concept of the International labour organization (ILO). The reported unemployment must not be confused with the registered unemployment rate, which is published by the Federal Agency for work according to the code of social law. For the calculation of the unemployment rates in the European Statistical System the results of the labour force survey.

The microcensus, including the integrated labour force survey has been technically and methodically redesigned, and in this Form at the beginning of 2020 will be introduced. For technical reasons, the data collected since the beginning of the year, first with restrictions. The results for January, February and March 2020 have been identified, therefore, with the help of a rating on the Basis of the results of the previous period, taking into account current developments.
