The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Puerto Rico Statistics Institute announced Thursday a series of changes to the methodology used to create Puerto Rico’s labor surveys, to align them with what is done and is available stateside and in most developed countries, officials for both agencies said.

The main improvements include transitioning the labor force survey toward a new sampling based on the Census 2010 results, developing alternate indicators for labor underutilization, and using digital maps to segment household blocks.
