In 2000, 88% of employed persons aged 15-54 were covered by superannuation (table 6.46). The proportion of employed males covered by superannuation was 89%, while that of employed females was 86%. Employees with paid leave entitlements had the highest rate of superannuation coverage, with 98% of those not working on a fixed-term contract and 96% of those working on a fixed term contract covered by superannuation. In contrast, owner- managers of unincorporated enterprises were the least likely to have superannuation coverage.
Table 6.47 shows the types of contributions being made. A higher proportion of females than males had only employer/business contributions (58% compared to 49%), while a higher proportion of males than females had personal and employer/business contributions (25% compared to 19%).
