Labor Force Survey 2010-2017

Requested from PSA by Ian Nicole Generalao at 10:07 PM on Dec 06, 2018.
Purpose: Research and Development/ Master's Thesis
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2010 - 12/31/2017
Tracking no: #PSA-365443902440

I would like to request your good office a copy of LFS where the primary occupations are specific to the 4-digit Philippine Statistical Occupational Codes (PSOC). I noticed that the circulating LFS are only specific up to the 2-digit PSOC level. I need the 4-digit PSOC level to match with my task-profile per occupation. Hope you could provide me with this corresponding data set.

Good day!

I would like to follow up on my data request of obtaining the LFS for the period 2010-2017 with the classification of 4-digit PSOC of the primary occupation. Hopefully, I could get it before the Christmas break to run some analyses. Hope you can consider this. Thank you!
