This report presents the main results of the Liberia Labour Force Survey 2010. The survey was
conducted jointly by the Ministry of Labour and the Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo‐Information
Services (LISGIS), and the fieldwork took place over a three‐month period from February to May 2010.
Technical support was provided by the International Labour Office.
This survey report is based on data collected from 6233 households in 523 enumeration areas spread
around the country. Socio‐demographic information was collected from about 32,000 household
members, and more detailed information on each person’s economic activity was collected from
about 25,000 household members aged 5 and over. Most of the data presented in this LFS report
relates to the population aged 15 and over, and is based on data collected from about 17,000
In an effort to have a larger sample for this survey, and to make government data collection more
efficient, fieldwork for this survey was combined with the fieldwork for the Core Welfare Indicators
Questionnaire (CWIQ) survey and with another survey module on human rights. As a result, the larger
sample allows for estimates to be made down to the county level, which had not been possible on
previous surveys such as CWIQ 2007 and DHS 2007.
According to the survey data, it is estimated that the number of people aged 15 and over in each
activity status is as shown in the table below:
