ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Contains data on different working arrangements residents of New South Wales use in order to manage their caring responsibilities and paid employment, including the different working arrangements they would have liked to have used more and the reasons why they could not. Other information includes whether people have changed jobs, quit their job or permanently changed other working arrangements in order to care for someone; become self employed to make it easier to meet their caring responsibilities; and whether caring responsibilities have prevented people from seeking employment. For persons who had caring responsibilities but were not in paid work, data on their main income source is also available. Additionally, for females with dependent children under 15 years, information on the use of maternity leave in the last 5 years was collected.
