The aim of the Labour Cost Survey is to provide national authorities, employers and employees organisations, universities and research institutes, with accurate, detailed and harmonised data on enterprises' labour costs. The survey relates to the labour costs incurred by the employer and asks for information such as employees' wages and salaries, overtime, bonuses, allowances, fringe benefits and other labour costs incurred by the employer throughout the reference year.
The target population of this survey is enterprises employing 10 or more persons and operating in NACE Sections B to S excluding Section O. This implies that relatively all types of economic activities are included in the target group except for agriculture and fishing activities and public administration-related enterprises. The Labour Cost Survey is carried out in line with European Regulations: EC 530/1999 and EC 1737/2005.
