History of the Canadian Labour Force Survey, 1945 to 2016: CS75-005/2016-1E-PDF

“The Canadian Labour Force Survey (LFS) produces the leading monthly economic indicator at Statistics Canada – just 20 days from reference period to release. It is Statistics Canada’s largest and longest-running monthly household survey. In over 70 years, the survey methodology, questionnaire, collection and processing techniques have undergone major changes. This paper summarizes many of these changes chronologically and provides references to more detailed information sources"--p. 4.
