The Economically Active Population Survey (EAPS) has been conducted since 1964. The current methodology has been used since 2005.

This continuous and quarterly research is aimed at families, intended to collect data on the labour force and its various categories (employed, unemployed) as well as on the population outside the labour market (inactive).

The initial sample is taken from about 65,000 families per quarter, equivalent to approximately 160,000.
