Image: New Labour Market Time Series


The ABS has recently released time series spreadsheets featuring data from the Labour Force Survey and two Labour Force supplementary surveys: Employee Earnings, Benefits and Trade Union Membership; and Persons Not in the Labour Force. The spreadsheets are available free from the ABS web site.

The new Labour Force Historical Time Series spreadsheets (cat. no. 6204.0.55.001) feature data from 1966 to 1984. Included is information on the civilian population by labour force status, sex, age, marital status, full-time/part-time status, states and territory of usual residence, industry, occupation, hours worked and status of worker (whether an individual is an Employer, Self Employed or Wage and Salary Earner).

The Employee Earnings, Benefits and Trade Union Membership spreadsheets (cat. no. 6310.0) present mean weekly earnings of employees in their main job for the period 1990 to 2006. Data are disaggregated by sex, full-time/part-time status, state, age, industry (1994 onwards), and occupation (1997 onwards). These spreadsheets complement the trade union membership time series spreadsheets that were released in 2006.

The Persons Not in the Labour Force spreadsheets (cat. no. 6220.0) present data from 1994 to 2006 on persons not in the labour force by age, sex and state; main activity when not in the labour force by state, age, sex and capital city/balance of state; main reason not actively looking for work by sex, age and state; and main reason not working due to caring for children for people not in the labour force by state.
