INDUSTRY OF MAIN/LAST JOB
(ANZSIC 2006 DIVISION)

This data item provides details on which industry division someone's main or last job is classified. Industry classification is based on the main economic activity performed in that job or business.

In order to distinguish between whether the industry relates to the current job of someone who is employed or the last job of someone who is unemployed, refer to Labour force status [LFSTATCE].

For people who are unemployed and have never worked before (new starter), or last worked over 2 years ago (former worker), industry data is not collected (see Whether worked full-time for 2 weeks or more [FTJSTATC]).

Industry divisions are described in detail in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industry Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 (Revision 1.0) (cat. no. 1292.0).

For more detailed industry data refer to Industry of main/last job (ANZSIC 2006 Expanded) [IND_06CE].

Industry data is only collected in the 'quarterly' labour force survey months: February, May, August and November (the second month of each financial year quarter).
