Delay in the release of QLFS Quarter 3 2020 results

The Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS) publication for the 3rd quarter of 2020, scheduled for release on 27 October 2020, is delayed. This is to allow time for additional data confrontation and the adjustments that need to be done, given that only dwelling units with telephone numbers were contacted during data collection. The QLFS Q3 2020 results will therefore be published on 12 November 2020.

Stats SA acknowledges the importance of this dataset and sincerely apologises for any inconvenience this delay is causing to the QLFS data users.
