Labour Market


Labour market statistics describes two main components: employment and unemployment. For each component an annual publication is published. Based on international recommendations, set out by the ILO, they provide insights into developments on employment and unemployment in the previous year. These two statistics form the basis for the workforce published in parallel with the unemployment statistics. Statistics Greenland also publishes monthly figures on the number of registered job seekers, registered with the local labor offices. These figures are published about two weeks after the end of the month.
