Monthly estimates are experimental statistics. They are calculated with a model, so they are less reliable and should be used carefully and with caution.

The Slovenian Labour Force Survey (which is the basis for the monthly unemployment estimates) has a revised questionnaire and methodology valid from the first quarter of 2021. The majority of changes are consequences of the new Regulation (EU) 2019/1700 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 10 October 2019 establishing a common framework for European statistics relating to persons and households, based on data at individual level collected from samples, together with its implementing and delegated acts.

Key changes (which also have consequence on the disseminated statistics) include new definitions of the target population, household and employed persons.

Additional explanations are available in the updated Methodological explanations.
