1The actual deficit may be significantly lower as exports are not always recorded.

2Using mirror trade data gives significantly higher imports (155.8 million USD) and exports (358.8 million USD).

3While the census asks 3 questions about the labor force, and only one specifically about unemployment, the ILO survey asks stepwise several questions about employment, which leads, eventually, to a much lower number of unemployed. There is no significant difference in the workforce.
