WELCOME TO THE SURVEY RESPONDENT'S PAGE
A range of surveys are used to provide a picture of the Australian labour market, with some surveys collecting information from households while others collect information from businesses.
Labour-related household surveys
Population censuses (e.g. Population of Census and Housing) and labour-related household surveys constitute the primary sources for labour statistics about people. In addition to information about current and previous labour force participation, information collected also includes demographic data, such as age, sex, family status and country of birth. Labour statistics collected about people provide insight into the supply of labour to the Australian labour market.
Labour-related business surveys
Business surveys are the primary source of data on labour costs, earnings, jobs and job vacancies, all of which provide insight into the demand for labour in the Australian labour market. Other sources of labour statistics include administrative data sets, which are the primary sources for information on occupational injury.
