  • Covers establishments employing 10 or more workers in the organized segment in nine sectors (manufacturing, construction, trade, transport, education, health, accommodation and restaurants, IT/BPO, and financial service activities)
  • These sectors account for 85% of the total employment in establishments employing 10 or more workers as per the Sixth Economic Census (EC), which serves as the basis of the survey.
  • While the QES provides a demand side picture, the National Sample Survey or Periodic Labor Force Survey (PLFS) gives the supply side picture of the labor market.
  • Objective : Enable the government to frame a “sound national policy on employment”.
