NOT IN THE LABOUR FORCE

<< Previous Section: Duration of Unemployment


INTRODUCTION

The Not in the Labour Force (NILF) data items provide details on the status of people not in the labour force, their main activities when not in the labour force, and the reason for leaving the labour force.

Aspects of whether they are marginally attached and may return to the labour force (e.g. 'discouraged job seekers') are also explored.

Most of these detailed items are not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS) and are derived from the supplementary survey Persons Not in the Labour Force, Australia (PNILF, cat. no. 6220.0), which is collected every September from those who are not in the labour force in seven-eighths of the LFS sample.


This section contains the following subsection :
      Reason for not in the labour force [NLFSTATC]
      Main activity when not in the labour force [NLFMNACC]
      Whether wanted to work [NLFWWRKC]
      Whether available to start work and with marginal attachment [NLFMGATC]
      Reason for ceasing last job [REASNLFC]
