SEARS is a household survey conducted throughout Australia between April and July 2007. The survey provides information on employment arrangements in the Australian workforce (e.g. job duration, access to paid leave, hours worked and work patterns), work and caring responsibilities, plans that people have for retirement, and saving for retirement through superannuation.

The information in the Guide on the data content provides details about the concepts and methods used in collecting and processing SEARS to help users make informed choices on the suitability of the estimates for particular uses. The Guide also provides a list of all data items available from the survey.
