How the study was done
Data collection for the labour market survey was carried out in October-November 2022, and the target group consisted of TEK members on the labor market. We received approximately 9,100 responses, and the response rate was about 20 percent. The number of respondents and the response rate were the same as last year.
74 percent of the respondents were men and 26 percent were women. The median age was 42 years. The most common degree completed was that of an academic engineer (Master of Science) (78 percent of respondents). The vast majority of the respondents, 91 percent, worked full-time. 2.2 percent of the respondents were unemployed or laid off, and the share of full-time entrepreneurs was 1.4 percent.
Of the respondents who worked full-time, 85 percent worked in the private sector, and about half of them worked in industry. 96 percent had a permanent employment relationship.
Many thanks once more to everyone who answered the survey!
