ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication presents information about employees. Data are presented on their weekly earnings, entitlement to core employment benefits such as types of paid leave, superannuation contributions made by employers, and trade union membership. This information can be cross-classified by a range of personal characteristics, and characteristics of employment such as full-time or part-time status, industry and occupation of main job and demographic characteristics.
The statistics in this publication were compiled from the Employee Earnings, Benefits and Trade Union Membership (EEBTUM) Survey conducted throughout Australia in August 2012 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS). Questions were asked of all employees in their main job except for those who worked solely for payment in kind in their main job.
As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
