Dear Korean NSO,

I was wondering whether young Korean men who is completing compulsory military services is regarded as Economically active population or not? If Yes, are they treated as Employed persons in calculating the unemployment rate?

Thanks

Dear Mas.

Thank you for visiting the KOSIS website.

Korean men in compulsory military services are excluded from the Economically Active Population Survey. 
Therefore, they are classified as neither the economically active population nor the economically inactive population.

Thanks.
