View full report

The Egypt Labor Market Panel Surveys (ELMPSs) of 1998, 2006, and 2012 and Jordan Labor Market Panel Survey (JLMPS) of 2010 have become well-recognised data sources for labour market studies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). These two surveys have been used in numerous research endeavors including peer reviewed academic publications, dissertations, and international organization reports. As part of the same series of surveys, the Tunisia Labor Market Panel Survey (TLMPS) of 2014 is the first wave of what will eventuallybecome a longitudinal survey of the Tunisian labor market.

This paper introduces the TL MPS of 2014, the first round of a publicly-available nationally representative longitudinal household survey. The authors provide a description of the sample and questionnaires. The paper discusses a number of data collection issues, such as non-response, as well as what was done to address these issues. The construction of sample weights is detailed. A comparison of the TLMPS to other Tunisian datasets is conducted to illustrate the representativeness of the data in terms of ke y demographic and labor market measures. Key features of the Tunisian labor market and potential avenues for research using the TLMPS are discussed.
