Unemployed persons according to LFS

Persons aged 15-74 who simultaneously fulfil three conditions:

- in the reference week were not employed,

- were actively looking for work, i.e. for over 4 weeks (the reference week being the fourth one) had been involved in concrete actions aimed at finding a job,

- were available to take up work during two weeks after the reference week.

Persons who were not seeking work because they had already found a job and were only waiting to start work within the period not longer than 3 months - and were ready to take it up, are also included in the category of the unemployed (till 2003 the definition did not take into account their readiness to take up work).
