INVESTIGATION INTO OPTIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LINKED EMPLOYER-EMPLOYEE DATA

A variety of different linked employer-employee datasets have been developed by a range of statistical agencies and central banks across the OECD, but there has been very little information produced in Australia since the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey (AWIRS) was last conducted in 1995.

Data which links employers and their employees have enabled researchers abroad to explore a range of employer-employee dynamics which are not possible from separate business-level and person-level datasets. Data in Australia regarding employers (often collected from businesses) are generally unconnected to data on employees (usually collected from individuals using household surveys).

The ABS is currently investigating options for developing linked employer-employee data, some of which involve making additional use of existing survey and/or administrative data, and others which involve data that are not currently available. The ABS expects to identify a number of potential approaches to linked employer-employee data in 2010. However, any substantial development work on one or more of these options would likely be contingent on receiving additional funding.
