Seeking feedback on Barriers and Incentives to Labour Force Participation, and Retirement and Retirement Intentions Labour Household Survey topics
The ABS periodically reviews the program of topics on our household survey program, and we are currently looking at whether there is justification to continue collecting the Barriers and Incentives to Labour Force Participation (cat. no. 6239.0) and the Retirement and Retirement Intentions (cat. no. 6238.0) topics that are collected in the Multipurpose Household Survey (MPHS). These topics are conducted biennially, alternating between core and expanded content. The next proposed cycle, 2012-13, will be an expanded content year, as was 2008-09.
We are keen to find out if you have used this data/publication, how you have used the data collected in these topics, and whether you have any comments about these topics. In particular, we would like to hear if you have concerns if these topics were no longer collected as part of the labour household surveys program.
The latest MPHS CURF (cat. no. 4100.0.55.001) containing the above topics based on 2008-09 data was released on 12 July 2010.
