The current daily status approach to measuring unemployment seeks to ascertain the activity status of an individual for each day of the reference week. It reports time disposition of an individual on each day of the reference week. This means that in addition to recording the activity being pursued, time intensity is also recorded in quantitative terms for each day of the reference week.

Following is the criteria used in assigning time intensities and determining activity status:

As can be seen from above, this approach is associated with persons-days and not to persons. The person-days in employment for each day of the reference week is aggregated to arrive at person-days of employment and unemployment (daily status) in the economy.

The person-day unemployment rate is calculated as the ratio of person-days in unemployment to the person-days in the labour force (i.e. person-days in employment plus person days in unemployment).
