OVERVIEW

Labour statistics are of interest from both economic and social perspectives. This product provides a brief overview of data available from the ABS relating to the Australian labour market.

Comparisons of data over a 20-year period are given for labour force participation, employment, unemployment, underemployment, hours worked, industrial disputes, wages and prices, and job vacancies.

Also included are recent data on earnings, persons not in the labour force, education and work, methods of setting pay and an international comparison of population and unemployment rates.

Unless specifically stated, all estimates are in original terms. Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components are due to rounding.

More information on the labour statistics in this publication can be found in the sources listed throughout the tables.

Labour statistics and related information are available free from the ABS website and are accessible through the Labour Topics @ a Glance page.

For a comprehensive reference on the concepts and definitions underpinning Australian labour statistics refer to the publication Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6102.0.55.001).
