In a separate paper, the schedules and questionnaires for the labor force surveys have been presented following those, the tabulation plans are discussed in this paper. For this purpose, a set of Dummy Tables (l to ) are attached. They follow certain lines of analysis, as will be explained later, but do not exhaust all possibilities. They are an illustrative set of Tables for the schedules^ and questionnaires presented in the other paper. No attempt has been made, to divide the Tables into priority and non priority lists. This and other modifications and improvements will be possible as experience is gained in the collection and analysis of data. As discussed in the paper on survey design and approach, separate estimates are to be derived for each stratum/domain included in the design Therefore, the Dummy Tables are to be prepared separately for each stratum/domain It may b clarified that these Dummy Tables represent tabulation plans and hot publication plans. They are designed mainly to cater to the analytical needs However, in publication of the data much editing and condensation will be heeded in order to ensure sufficient observations in each cross-section and make the presentation meaningful. The publication plans should also include derived measures like labor force participation rates, rates of employment, unemployment, etc., which have not been considered here because they will emerge from the analysis of tabulated data.
