There are two forms of underemployment:
The number of underemployed workers is an important indicator of labour market performance. It highlights the unsatisfied aspirations of many workers for adequate work and greater earnings.
In September 2003, there were 207,900 employed persons aged 15 years and over in the labour force. Of these, 15,300 (7.4%) were underemployed, comprising 14,700 part-time workers who wanted more hours and 600 full-time workers who for economic reasons worked less than 35 hours in the reference week.
Of all part-time workers who wanted more hours, 59.2% were female. Some 54.4% of part-time workers who wanted more hours reported that they would like to work full-time.
These statistics relate to a Tasmania Together benchmark.
