The first annual report was released in May 2019. This fourth annual report was released on June 14, 2022.  The survey provides estimates for indicators such as labour force participation rate (LFPR), the worker population ratio (WPR), and includes data on the employment status of workers and the sector (agriculture, secondary or tertiary) they work in. It also supplies data on the unemployment rate in the country. Data is calculated as per both usual status or “on the basis of the reference period of the last 365 days preceding the date of the survey” and current weekly status (CWS), that is, “on the basis of a reference period od last seven days preceding the survey.”  The data collection for this annual report covered the period of July 2020 to June 2021. The survey for this report covered 410,818 people (236,279 in rural areas and 174,539 in urban areas) from 100,344 households (55,389 in rural areas and 44,955 in urban areas) across the country except villages of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.  The 754-page document contains three chapters: Introduction (Chapter One); Concepts and Definitions (Chapter Two); and Summary of Findings (Chapter Three).
