IN THIS ISSUE


This issue of SA Stats is a quarterly data release and represents an overview of a number of economic, social and environment statistics. The topics covered include demography, state accounts, consumption, investment, production, prices, labour force, incomes, housing finance, and environment. The overview is updated on a quarterly basis (in March, June, September and December) and in the intervening months the publication includes feature articles that provide a South Australian focus on economic, social and environmental issues.

In the 12 months to November 2007, the number of persons employed full-time in South Australia increased by 12,900 to 533,300 persons. This was driven by growth in female full-time employment (up 11,300 persons). Although more females are working full-time, the wage gap between males and females in South Australia is increasing. In the 12 months to August 2007, the average weekly (ordinary time) earnings for full-time males increased 4.5% to $1,076.40. During this same period, the average weekly (ordinary time) earnings for full-time females increased 1.5% to $926.20.

Explanatory Notes are not included in SA Stats in the form found in other ABS publications. Readers are directed to the Explanatory Notes contained in related ABS publications (links to source documents are provided in the summary table).
