The European Union Labour Force Survey (EU LFS) is a large household sample survey which began in 1983 and is conducted in all EU member states and a few EFTA and EU candidate nations. The survey provides quarterly and annual results on labor participation of people ages 15 and over as well as on persons outside the labor force. The population outside the labor force includes persons carrying out obligatory military or community service, students, female or male homemakers, and institutionalized persons.

In addition to full microdata sets available by request, Eurostat provides freely available public microdata (or public use files, PUFs) for some countries and survey years, and data in other formats.
