CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK


LABOUR MOBILITY

The following diagram illustrates the conceptual framework for the 2013 Labour Mobility Survey and presents the size of each group at February 2013.

The framework only includes those persons aged 15 years and over who worked at some time during the year ended February. These people were classified according to the duration of their employment with their employer/business at February 2013 into two key groups:

  • those who had been with their current employer/business for less than 12 months;
  • those who had been with their current employer/business for one year or more.

People who worked at February 2013, who had been with their current employer/business for less than 12 months, were asked whether they had changed their employer/business in the previous 12 months. Those who had changed employer/business were then asked if they had changed their occupation, industry, usual hours worked, or employment type, between their last and current employer/business.

Of those people who had worked for their current employer/business for one year or more, those who were employees excluding owner managers of incorporated enterprises were asked whether they had been promoted, transferred to a different position, changed occupation, or changed usual hours worked in the 12 months to February 2013. Employees excluding owner managers of incorporated enterprises who reported any of these changes, were considered to have had some change in work in the 12 months to February 2013.

Information was also collected from people who were not working at February 2013 who ceased a job in the previous 12 months.
