Forestry Labour Force

Swedish Forest Agency is responsible authority for official statistics on employment in forestry. The main parts of the content covers number of Annual working units (AWU) and number of employees in forest labour.

The statistics is based on 3 annual surveys of employment which together cover the total employment in forest field work. The three components are; large-scale forestry, small-scale forestry and contractors.

The surveys have separate methods but taken together, the three separate surveys provide the most feasible comprehensive picture of the size and the total AWU:s of the labour force in forestry.
