NOTES


ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

This publication presents information about the nature of employment arrangements in the Australian workforce. It also presents information about different types of employment which can be cross-classified by characteristics such as hours worked, industry and occupation and demographic characteristics.

The statistics in this publication were compiled from data collected in the Forms of Employment Survey, conducted throughout Australia in November 2007 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS). Questions were asked about employment arrangements in the main job of all employed people, except those who were contributing family workers in their main job.

NOTES ABOUT THE ESTIMATES

In 2007, only owner managers of incorporated enterprises (OMIEs) and owner managers of unincorporated enterprises (OMUEs) were asked if they worked on a contract basis. Employees (excluding OMIEs) were asked if they worked on a fixed-term contract. In 2006, all employed people, including OMIEs and OMUEs, were asked if they worked on a contract basis. Users therefore need to exercise care when comparing the number of people who worked on a contract basis in this publication with the 2006 release.

ROUNDING

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