Creating stable employment is one of the important objectives of any government. so, overall planning needs indicators that reflect the changes of the labour force status and the population. Labor force survey with rotation sampling is one of the sources that can be used to obtain these indicators. The labor Force Survey (LFS) is done by Statistical Centre of Iran, using a rotating sample that is implemented quarterly since 2005. In this paper, the method of computing labor force flow for LFS data of Iran is described and the resulting estimates for male and female labor force are proposed. Finally, these estimates  for a period of 6 years are analyzed.
