REVIEW OF DATA COLLECTED IN THE JOB SEARCH EXPERIENCE SURVEY
The Job Search Experience Survey is collected annually in July and information is released in Job Search Experience (cat. no. 6222.0). The survey provides information about the way people look for jobs, the methods they use and what ultimately proves to be successful when obtaining a job. Particular focus is on two key aspects: steps taken to find work, and barriers encountered in finding work. In order to provide a contrast in successful and unsuccessful job search experience, information is collected from people who started a job in the previous 12 months and from unemployed people.
The current review is focusing on evaluating the continued relevance of the data items in the survey and on assessing the extent to which the survey is continuing to capture the evolving nature of the labour market and changes in the experiences of people in seeking work. Attention will also be given to whether some populations, such as owner managers, require additional information in order to better understand their own particular experiences in starting a job.
