ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication presents summary data on selected cultural occupations and industries from the 2011 Census of Population and Housing. The tables show the number of 'culturally' employed persons in Australia classified by the occupation of their main job and their industry of employment. They also include cross-tabulations with variables such as age, income and hours worked.
Comparisons with the 2006 Census are shown using the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification 2006 and Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations. The 2001 Census was coded using a different set of industry and occupation classifications and so comparisons with that Census are not possible.
The data in this publication are aligned, where possible, with the categories specified in the Occupation and Industry Classifications of the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications (ACLC) (Second Edition) (cat. no. 4902.0) which were released in 2008. Occupations and industries are considered as 'cultural' based on inclusion in the ACLC.
Information on terms used in the publication can be found in the Explanatory notes. More detailed information on the classifications used in the Census is available in the Census Dictionary, 2011 (cat. no. 2901.0).
