Quadros de Pessoal (Personnel Records)

Quadros de Pessoal (Personnel Records) is a compulsory survey of all firms, conducted annually, in October, for purposes of monitoring compliance with labour law provisions.

The dataset contains information on every wage earner in the Portuguese economy, with the exception of civil servants and independent workers, as well as on their employers (firm-level and establishment-level). Data cover information on each establishment and firm, such as size, location, economic activity, and employment, as well as information on each employee, such as gender, age, education, skills, occupation, tenure, monthly wages, and hours worked.

Access to this dataset is possible due to a protocol with the Statistics, Studies and Planning Department of the Ministry of Labour and Social Solidarity (GEP-MTSS).
