Nepal Labour Force Survey 2008 (NLFS II) is the second round of a multi topic national
labour force survey carried out by Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) from January to
December 2008. As a follow up to the first NLFS of 1998/99 (NLFS I), NLFS II helps not
only to update labour force statistics but also to compare changes undergone in labour and labour market conditions in Nepal in the last nine years. The survey adopted two stage stratified sampling scheme, as was done in the previous survey. NLFS II enumerated 15,976 households selected from 799 PSUs in the entire country compared to 14,335 households from 720 PSUs in NLFS I. The country was stratified into 6 strata comprising 3 urban and 3 rural areas in NLFS II, whereas there were only two strata (Urban and rural) in NLFS I. NLFS II estimates that a large proportion of households about 89.2 percent were reported to be living in their own dwelling units and 9.2 percent in rented dwellings. Majority (68.4 percent) of the households used wood as fuel for cooking. On the other hand, the proportion of households that used Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) was 12.3 percent. Electricity was the main energy source for lighting for 56.1 percent of the households. Around 33.0 percent of the households still use kerosene/oil/gas as the main fuel for lighting. About 45.0 percent of households used piped water and 39.1 percent of household use hand pump/boring water. Only a quarter (25.4 percent) of households has a modern flushing toilet and 23.4 percent have an ordinary toilet. Most of the households (57.9 percent) had radio while 33.2 percent had a television set. Around twenty eight (28.3) percent had a mobile phone, 9.8 percent had a fixed line telephone and 3.1 percent had a computer. 78.4 percent of all households in the country had agriculture land.
