What do part-time and full-time employment mean?

Part-time employed persons are employed persons who usually worked fewer than 35 hours a week (in all jobs) and either did so during the reference week or were not at work during the reference week.

Full-time employed persons are employed persons who usually worked 35 hours or more a week (in all jobs) and those who, although usually working fewer than 35 hours a week, worked 35 hours or more during the reference week.

Labour force estimates are derived from the Labour Force Survey component of the Monthly Population Survey. Information is obtained from the occupants of selected dwellings by specially trained interviewers using computer-assisted interviewing.
