The General Authority for Statistics (GAS) will publish on Thursday the results of its labor market survey for the fourth quarter of 2016, according to its spokesman Tayseer Al-Mofarij.

He said the results will be announced at a press conference to be attended by the authority’s chairman Fahd Bin Solaiman Al-Tukhaifi and other officials.

The spokesman said the “Labor Market Bulletin”, which will be published on the occasion on the authority’s website, included the exact number of the Saudi working men and women, the number of the job
seekers and the rate of unemployment, in addition to other relevant information.

He said the authority has collected the data from the administrative records of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development, the General Organization of Social Insurance (GOSI), the Human Resources
Development Fund (Hadaf) and the National Information Center of the Interior Ministry. “We have also collected the data from surveying a number of Saudi families,” he added.


Al-Mofarij said all the statistics about the Kingdom can easily be browsed on the authority’s website: www.stats.gov.sa

In its labor market survey for the third quarter of 2016, the authority said the unemployment rate was 5.7 percent.
