Contains information from three survey topics: weekly earnings of employees, core employment benefits and trade union members. Weekly earnings data shows the distribution of weekly earnings of all wage and salary earners classified by full-time/part-time employees, employees with or without leave entitlements, sector, hours worked and hours paid. Core employment benefits data includes information relating to sick leave, annual leave, long-service leave, maternity/paternity leave and superannuation coverage. Information about the level of trade union membership is also provided. For each of these topics estimates can be cross-classified by demographics such as state, sex, age, marital status, birthplace; and by labour force characteristics such as industry of main job and occupation of main job.

From the August 1998 issue, the publication title has been changed to reflect the permanent inclusion of data relating to employment benefits and trade union membership. The August 1997 issue also contains information about core employment benefits, and trade union membership. Data for August 1994 and August 1995 are available as a standard data service (6310.0.40.001).

Regarding the three survey topics covered by this publication, weekly earnings data have been collected annually since 1975, except in 1996. Core employment benefits data have been collected annually since 1983. From 1983 to 1992 the survey collected a broader range of non-wage employment benefits. These are now collected on an irregular basis, with the full survey in August 1999 and again in August 2004. Information about the level of trade union membership in Australian was first collected in 1982, then two-yearly from 1986 to 1990, and annually from 1992.
