Quarterly Labour Cost Survey (QLCS) is a quarterly continuous statistical operation whose main object is to know the evolution of the average laboral cost by employee and month, the laboral cost by effective work-hour and by time spent working and not working. Since the third quarter of 2013, it also obtains information on job vacancies and employment offers.

Moreover, the QLCS is the source of information necessary to elaborate the Harmonised Labour Cost Index (HLCI), which is part of the euroindicators requested by the EU Statistics Office (EUROSTAT) from the Euro Zone countries, in order to measure the convergence in laboral costs in the different member states.
