Data items collected by the LFS are capable of being cross classified with Data Items Relevant to Migrants and Ethnicity.
The LFS is conducted as part of the Monthly Population Survey program which collects data on particular aspects of the labour force. In most months the LFS includes a supplementary survey topic. A list of these supplementary surveys is available from Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6102.0.55.001) and Labour Force Survey Standard Products and Data Item Guide, Dec 2009 (cat. no. 6103.0).
DATA ITEMS RELEVANT TO MIGRANTS AND ETHNICITY
Specific data cubes containing country of birth and year of arrival data can be found by consulting: Data item list: Where to find: Demographic items from the Labour Force Survey Standard Products and Data Item Guide, Dec 2009 (cat. no. 6103.0), and Labour Force Historical Timeseries, Australia, February 2009 (cat. no. 6204.0.55.001).
OTHER DATA ITEMS COLLECTED
A full list of data items collected by the Labour Force Survey and details on scope, geographic coverage, data availability and publications, methodology and classifications are available from the Labour Force Survey Standard Products and Data Item Guide, Dec 2009 (cat. no. 3103.0), Labour Force Historical Timeseries, Australia, February 2009 (cat. no. 6204.0.55.001) and Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6102.0.55.001) or visit the Labour Force Survey entry in the Directory of Statistical Sources.
The Migrant Data Matrices provide a link to summary data on migrants from the The Labour Force Survey. The data items included in each datacube are not exhaustive, but rather a selection of the data available. Care must be taken in comparing data from different collections presented in the Matrices due to differences in survey methodology, definitions and reference periods.
Additional data are also available in the publication Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
