NOTES


ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

The statistics in this publication were compiled from data collected in the Job Search Experience Survey, conducted throughout Australia in July 2011 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS).

This publication presents information about the experiences of unemployed people in seeking work, in terms of the steps they have taken to find work and the difficulties they have encountered in finding work. It also presents information about employed people who started their current job in the previous 12 months. For this group, data on the steps taken to attain work and current job details are provided.

From July 2011, this publication also presents information about persons employed for more than a year in their current job who looked for work in the previous 12 months, including steps taken to find work and difficulties in finding work. Further, the survey provides information about Owner Managers who started their current business in the previous 12 months including the reasons for starting or purchasing their business.

In addition, demographic information is provided for all of these groups.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

This survey was redeveloped in 2011 to capture information on persons employed for more than a year in their current job who looked for work in the previous 12 months. Information was also collected on owner managers and their reasons for starting/purchasing a business. For more information on these changes see Appendix 1.
