Labour Market Indicators

Fact Sheet on the Labour Market Indicators 2007 2010 October 2011

The annual Employment Survey is a tool used by the Government to track and evaluate current employment trends in Bermuda. The labour market indicators presented in this abstract are based on the annual survey data collected between 2007 and 2010. Eight key indicators of the labour market are presented. They represent a response to the needs of government, commerce and the general public for relevant employment information and provide an emphasis on such trends as employment level, unemployment, age, hours of work, vacancies, income and occupation employment level. Contained in this report are a set of indicators for the four major status groups used to classify job holders for employment purposes: Bermudian, non-Bermudian Spouse of a Bermudian, other non-Bermudian and permanent residents. The decision to provide indicators on the basis of Bermudian status reflects the trend by employers of recruiting non-Bermudians to fill skilled and non-skilled positions as recorded by the annual Employment Survey. A set of indicators for the total job market is also presented. All indicators reflect the employment situation at the Employment Survey reference week typically the week that encompasses 31 August unless otherwise indicated.
