MULTI-PURPOSE HOUSEHOLD SURVEY

The Multi-Purpose Household Survey (MPHS) provides annual statistics for a number of small, self-contained topics, including a number of labour-related topics. Data for MPHS topics are collected each month over a financial year. A topic on retirement and retirement intentions was conducted in 2006-07. Results from this survey were released in January 2008 in Retirement and Retirement Intentions, Australia (cat. no. 6238.0).



UPDATE OF THE ANNUAL MEASURES OF LABOUR UNDERUTILISATION

The annual measures of labour underutilisation have now been updated for 2007. The 2001 to 2006 data have also been updated using the new LFS method of composite estimation. The data for the annual headcount measures are presented in tables 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 of this publication. A spreadsheet containing the headcount measures is available from the ABS website.
