Government/Non-government Employer Indicator (GNGP)


This variable was previously called Industry Sector but has been renamed Government/Non-Government Employer Indicator for the 2006 Census. The classification no longer has the category '5 Community Development Employment Program'. This category is now covered by the variable Community Development Employment Projects Participation (CDEP).


GNGP classifies employed people aged 15 years and over according to whether they are employed in the government or non-government (private) sector. There are three categories for the three levels of government. That is, Commonwealth, state/territory and local government. Employed people who are not employed by the government are coded to the category Private sector.
