A supplementary survey titled "Reconciliation between work and family life" was linked to the labour force survey in the 2nd quarter of 2018, which referred to the population aged 18–64 years. The supplementary questionnaire was issued to households in the selected sample of the labour force survey, at the same time as the basic survey was made.
In the labour force survey, 0.9% of the people aged 18–64 years answering the basic survey did not answer the supplementary survey in the 2nd quarter of 2018.

Due to weighing and adding up, there may be slight differences in the same aggregates of published absolute numbers.
If a variable (after grossing up) involves an occurrence of 2,500 to 4,999 persons, the data are to be regarded with reservation only because due to the high sampling error they may be incorrect; in case of an occurrence of fewer than 2,500 persons, the data are not usable.
