5 Excluded from the supplementary topic:
6 Information was collected by either face to face or telephone interview from one responsible adult per household. This adult answered questions on behalf of all persons in the household aged 15 years and over. Information was sought from approximately 3,636 persons and data was obtained from approximately 95% or 3,458 of these people.
7 Coverage rules were applied to ensure that each person was associated with only one dwelling and hence had only one chance of selection in the survey.
EFFECTS OF ROUNDING
8 Estimates in this publication have been rounded and discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
OCCUPATION AND INDUSTRY DATA
9 Information about the industry of a person's current occupation was obtained by merging data from August and November Labour Force data with the Labour Mobility and Intentions Survey. Where records could not be successfully matched with the Labour Force data a value was imputed.
RELATIONSHIP WITH MINING INDUSTRY
10 To measure the extent of the influence of the mining industry in the Labour Force people working for an employer were asked whether they worked in a mining operation or mining support activity (see Glossary). Owner managers were asked whether their business was a mining operation or support activity or whether it provided a service to the mining industry. Their responses were then cross classified with industry of current occupation.
INTENTION TO LEAVE CURRENT JOB
11 People who were working were asked whether they intended to leave or change their current job within the next 12 months, whether they intended to leave the work force permanently and whether they intended to move to a job in a different industry.
12 Respondents were asked whether they intended to study for another educational qualification within the next three years and if so whether it was for career or job related reasons. They were asked about the type of educational institution or organisation at which they intended to enrol, and the level of qualification intended to study.
WORKING OUTSIDE PERTH
13 To establish the number of people affected by the fly-in fly-out working arrangements, people who were usual residents of Perth were asked whether they worked outside the metropolitan area for 'all or most of the time' , 'some of the time' or whether they worked 'all of the time in the Perth metropolitan area'.
