The European Union Labour Force Survey (EU LFS) is a widely used source of information on the participation in the labour force of citizens from the countries of the European Union. The LFS data set contains quarterly collected, anonymized data on individuals representing various industries and occupations. The data are collected using common classifications, concepts and definitions. In each country, the same set of characteristics is collected. Despite common standards for data collection, the use of the unified LFS data set may sometimes encounter various difficulties. First of all, from the very beginning of the LFS, there have been numerous methodological changes in sampling (Kerr & Wittenberg, 2015), definitions and classifications (European Commission, 2018). These changes make it difficult to compare data with previous years. Secondly, different cross-national classification rules may produce various problems.
