MAIN ACTIVITY WHEN NOT IN THE LABOUR FORCE

This data item provides the main activity someone is doing while they are not actively participating in the labour force.

It helps to distinguish between those who can't or are not intending to work and those who could be available to enter the labour force in the future.

This item is not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS) and is derived from the supplementary survey Persons Not in the Labour Force, Australia (PNILF, cat. no. 6220.0), which is collected every September from those who are not in the labour force in seven-eighths of the LFS sample.
