Census of Population and Housing
The 2006 Census of Population and Housing presented a different perspective, with 6,412 people reporting that their main job (i.e. where they worked the most hours) in the week before Census Night was in the Museums industry. Of these, 41% were employed in cultural occupations such as museum and gallery attendants, curators, technicians or conservators. The 59% of museum employees not in cultural occupations included specialist managers, project and program administrators, security officers, general clerks, and education officers.
The Census identified an additional 1,136 people working in a museum-related occupation, but not in the Museums industry (e.g. a conservator working in a library). There were 315 Museum or gallery guides, 380 Museum or gallery curators, 212 Conservators, and 129 Museum and gallery technicians working in other industries.
