The employment to population ratio provides the number of people who were employed as a proportion of the total population of interest. In 2010, there were 10.9 million people aged 18 years or over who were employed, or 65% of adults. Of those employed, there is a diversity of arrangements, with Australians generally having access to flexible working time patterns, including part-time and casual employment. Of employed adults, 7.7 million usually worked full-time, that is 35 hours or more each week, and 3.2 million usually worked part-time, or fewer than 35 hours each week (tables 3 and 4).
