UNDEREMPLOYMENT

<< Previous Section: Hours Worked


WHETHER PART-TIME AND LOOKING FOR AND AVAILABLE TO WORK MORE HOURS

This data item details whether someone who is working part-time is actively looking for more hours in their current job, looking for a second job, or looking for another job that has more hours.

It also provides information on whether they would be available to start working more hours during the reference week or in the next 4 weeks.

People working part-time but not actively looking for more hours are also asked if they would prefer to work more hours, or are happy to continue working less than 35 hours a week.

Only those who were available to start within the next 4 weeks and had actively looked for, or preferred to work, more hours were considered to be underemployed (see Underemployment status [UNDREMPC]).

This data item is only measured in the 'quarterly' labour force survey months: February, May, August and November (the second month of each financial year quarter).
