National Statistics, Republic of China (Taiwan)

Are persons who have gone to the China area or other foreign area to invest or establish a factory and persons assigned by their Taiwan headquarters to work in the China area or other foreign area considered employed?

This is determined by their length of time outside the national territory. Persons who have not spent more than two years outside the national territory are still considered employed, but those who have exceeded two years outside the national territory have already lost their registered residency, are not subjects of the Manpower Survey, and are not included in employment statistics.
