Methodological Notes

1. The data provided in this release, including revised data and the relevant classifications, is based on administrative records held at Jobsplus. Data for month t-1 and year y-1 are revised with each registered employment news release.

2. The National Statistics Office publishes, on a quarterly basis, another set of statistics on employment and unemployment based on the Labour Force Survey (LFS). When compiling LFS statistics, the NSO adopts the International Labour Organisation (ILO) definition, an internationally agreed definition on employment and unemployment. This definition has also been adopted by Eurostat and is used by all EU Member States. More details regarding the methodology used for the compilation of employment and unemployment statistics from the LFS may be found in quarterly LFS news releases. Since Jobsplus records and LFS results measure two different facets of employment and unemployment, these are not comparable. Users are therefore cautioned that these two sets of statistics should not be used interchangeably.

3. Full-time and part-time status is determined by the employer’s declaration (or that made by a self-employed person) in the engagement form which is required to be sent to Jobsplus upon commencement of employment.

4. Apprentices/trainees/interns are included under their respective economic activity.

5. Definitions:

Labour Supply: The sum of the full-time registered employed and the registered unemployed population (Part I and Part II).

Apprentices/trainees/interns: Persons who are still enrolled in an educational or training scheme and at the same time attached to the employer as part of a scheme or training experience.

Regional employment: Data on Malta/Gozo employment differs on the basis of economic sector. Accordingly, the data on private sector employment depends on employee residence, whereas data for public sector depends on employer information on the location of work of its employees.

● Full-time equivalent (FTE): Employment in full-time equivalent is a conversion method used to measure the number of employees according to the number of hours worked. When using FTE a full-time employee working a 40-hour week is equivalent to 1.0, whereas a person who works 20 hours per week is equivalent to 0.5. Table 2 of this release includes persons who work full-time, persons on a full-time with reduced hours basis and full-time employees who are on unpaid leave. When converting these figures into FTE, full-time employees are considered as 1 whereas persons working full-time with reduced hours or who are on unpaid leave are considered according to the hours worked. FTE data is currently available in respect of public sector employment and is based on the administrative records of the People and Standards Division within the Office of the Prime Minister. FTE information for the private sector is not available.

Self-employed: A person who registers as being self-employed is someone who runs a trade or business, rather than working as an employee for someone else. A person is self-employed if s/he is a sole proprietor or a partner working in a business who may employ other individuals to work for him/her.

Employees: Persons who are registered by their employers to be engaged as employees earning a wage or salary.

Part-timers holding a full-time job: Persons having a part-time job as a secondary job to their main employment. Persons having more than one part-time job in addition to their full-time job are counted once under this category.

Part-time as a primary job: Persons having only a part-time job as a primary job. Persons having more than one part-time job are counted once under this category.

Part I of the unemployment register: Persons registering under Part I are either new job seekers who have left school, re-entrants into the labour market, or individuals who have been made redundant by their former employer.

Part II of the unemployment register: Persons registering under Part II are either workers who have been dismissed from work due to disciplinary action, left work out of their own free will, refused work or training opportunities or were struck off the register after an inspection by Law Enforcement personnel.
