Resumé

Participation rate on the Greenland labour market: situation of year 2000A goal is that a large part of the population of normal working age is employed. The participationrate is one of the statistics used to describe the performance of the economy in this respect. Twosources are used to arrive at an estimate of the rate both for Greenland in general and for fourregions defined by four so called growth towns: Nuuk, Sisimiut, Ilulissat and Qaqortoq. They areStatistic Greenland's publications on employment and on unemployment. There are somedifficulties using the available data: the employment and unemployment surveys refer to periodswhereas the potential workforce is counted at a date. Furthermore persons with yearly incomebelow an arbitrary limit of 40.000 DKK are sorted out even though they should contribute to thenumber of full year employed. The participation rate is found to be much higher in Nuuk than in theother regions. For Greenland as such the number is in line with figures for Western Europe andNorth America. Characteristics of people not in the work force are looked for. To some extent aconnection exists to the number people receiving pension as disabled, people in education, andthose on leave because of childbirth, but the relation is imperfect and great differences are seenbetween regions.
