ARANGO, Luis Eduardo; GARCIA, Andrés Felipe e POSADA, Carlos Esteban. The methodology of the Continuous Household Survey and the connection of the Colombian series urban labor market. Desarro. soc. [online]. 2008, n.61, pp. 207-248. ISSN 0120-3584.
The Continuous Household Survey of Colombia had important changes in 2000 with respect to concepts, questions, frequency of data collection and sample covering. This has made difficult to carry out studies on the labor market that demand series from 1984 up until now. The effects of the changes mirror in the reduction of the unemployment and participation rates while the increase in the occupation rate. This article presents two forms of joining the series: one built on micro data and another based on the labor market. The results allow us to propose series of employment, unemployment and participation rates to join with the recent official series generated from the Continuous Household Survey.
