Inicialmente se comentaba que no consumían Clara Líquida, pero esto se debía a que no conocían los beneficios que brinda el producto. Quienes ya la consumían, comentaban hacerlo a diario y debido principalmente por salud, por la poca grasa y por no contener colesterol.

En general, la presentación de 500 ml. les pareció adecuada.

Policy brief
To provide labour market indicators through conducting Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS)

To prepare analytical report (econometric analysis for identifying the determinants/factors) based on microdata of QLFS.
Five Year Plan and Perspective Plan
The employment target for the Five Year Plan will be to create adequate number of high productivity, high income jobs not only for new entrants but also to allow a substantial transfer of labour from the informal sector to the formal sector. Furthermore, reduction of unemployment rate was one of the broad goals of the Perspective Plan for a Transformed Bangladesh by 2021.
Harmonized with 19th ICLS resolution:
Old & New definition of Employment and Work statistics will be used

An appropriate statistically sound sample design with rotating panel sample developed to provide estimates of the main aggregates of work/labour statistics;

The procedure of repeating a segment of the sample and collecting information on a set of elements on two or more successive occasions is referred to as 'panel study approach'. This approach is called 'rotation sampling'.

Survey domain are Geographical Division and Urban/Rural/City corporations;
Key indicators of the labour market, recommended by the international community will be generated from the QLFS for labour market analysis;

Indicators can be classified, by activity, occupation, status in employment and education status or by geographic area, sex or age group;

Continuous labour force survey will be conducted quarterly from July 2015 to June 2017 and estimates will be provided quarterly;

Dual series, for a specified period (at least 2 years) following the current and revised standards of labour statistics will be maintained.

Sustainability issue-mechanism for institutionalization after project period

Attitudinal issues of some households respondents, particularly in Apartments

Dropout of Enumerators

Data interpretation-misinterpretation
Seasonal variation (or seasonality) refers to the degree to which employment rises and falls because of the seasonal pattern (caused by climate).
Employment level drop by a large extent throughout the July-September (Lean Period for Agriculture), and then rise by the same extent through the rest part.

These seasonal swings in employment usually follow a regular pattern each year.

The Q-to-Q employment changes caused by seasonality can distort perceptions of the current economic situation, and obscure long-term growth trends or turning points in the economy.

However, seasonality is important in and of itself, because it adds a burden to the economy.

A seasonal pattern reveals regular increases and decreases that repeat year after year in a time series of estimates.
