Current Population Survey

The monthly Current Population Survey (or Household Survey) collects labor-market information such as the unemployment rate. This video was made in early 1994 when certain survey questions were changed. It shows how the survey data are collected. Presumably, the old laptops shown have been replaced. (And presumably most survey takers don't run into CIA employees - unlike the interview shown here.) Press releases from the Current Population Survey are available at
