There are several surveys undertaken by the ABS which measure aspects of employment. Each has a different purpose, with different definitions and varying collection methodologies. Data from several of these data sources are presented in this chapter which, when taken together, provide a good picture of employment and voluntary work in the cultural sector in Australia. This chapter focuses mainly on the people who undertake paid work in cultural industries and occupations. Information is also presented on unpaid involvement which includes voluntary work. Different aspects of the cultural sector are selected from the data sources described below.
