Statistics Sweden will be using the international unemployment figures for the LFS for October 2007 onwards. Until now, people who have been studying full-time at any time during the three weeks before the reference week have been classified as not in the labour force instead of as unemployed. Revised data regarding the number of unemployed people are within the statistical margin of error for all months in 2007.
