|Title||What is ‘employment-population ratio in the Economically Active Population Survey?|
The employment-population ratio is an indicator of what portion of the population of age 15 and older is employed. It is influenced by change in employed persons as well as change in the population of age 15 and older. If the number of employed persons increases while the population also increases in the same ratio or more, then the employment-population ratio remains the same or can decrease, in the latter case. On the contrary, even if the number of employed persons decreases, greater decrease in the population would lead to an increase in the employment-population ratio.
Employment-population ratio (%) = (Employed persons ÷ Persons of age 15 and older)×100
