To provide data on employee earnings and other labour costs for States, Territories and Australia.


This survey provides estimates of labour costs (i.e. earnings, superannuation, workers' compensation, payroll tax and fringe benefits tax) for the private and public sectors. The sample survey is conducted by mail. For the 1996-97 survey, approximately 8,200 units were selected from the ABS Register of Businesses, to ensure adequate State and industry representation. The statistical units were stratified by State and Territory, industry and employment size. For the public sector, level of government/public enterprise status were also used as stratification variables.
