NOTES


ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

This publication presents information about the distribution of weekly earnings of employees, their entitlement to core employment benefits such as paid leave (paid holiday, paid sick, paid long service and paid maternity/paternity leave), superannuation contributions made by employers on behalf of employees, and trade union membership. This information can be cross-classified by a range of personal characteristics such as age, sex and country of birth, and by characteristics of employment such as full-time or part-time status, industry and occupation of main job.

The statistics in this publication were compiled from the Employee Earnings, Benefits and Trade Union Membership (EEBTUM) Survey conducted throughout Australia in August 2011 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.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Table 12 presented in the 2010 publication has been split into two tables, becoming Table 12 and Table 13 in 2011. Additional information is presented on weekly earnings in percentiles and deciles in tables 2, 7, 8 and 9.


ROUNDING

As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
