About the Labour Market National Statistical Centre

The Labour Market Statistics National Statistics Centre is responsible for:

  • promoting the effective use of labour market statistics;
  • influencing the development of national and international frameworks, and assisting with their implementation; and
  • improving the relevance and reliability of labour market statistics produced by the ABS.

We have two teams who specialise in various aspects of the labour market:

Labour Market Dynamics

The Labour Market Dynamics team specialises in statistics that inform on transitions within the labour market, particularly into and out of employment. The team has a focus on understanding the nature of these transitions and the people who are affected. If you have any questions relating to transitions, unemployment and underemployment, underutilisation, job search experience and job vacancies, retirement, labour force participation or persons not in the labour force, please contact Joanne Baker (team leader) on (02) 6252 7059 or email <labour.statistics@abs.gov.au> .

Wages and Workplace Relations

The Wages and Workplace Relations team specialises in statistics relating to the nature of employment, such as wages and conditions of employment, employment arrangements, working time arrangements, leave entitlements, and workplace relations (bargaining, trade union membership). If you have any questions in regards to earnings measures and sources (including gender wage issues), independent contracting and other forms of employment, casual employment or methods of setting pay, please contact Michael Gerrity (team leader) on (02) 6252 5514 or email <labour.statistics@abs.gov.au>.


For further information or queries regarding labour related statistics, contact the Labour Market Statistics Section on (02) 6252 7206 or email <labour.statistics@abs.gov.au>.

Introduction to Labour Statistics is a one-day training course run in partnership between the National Statistical Training Institute and the Labour Market Statistics National Statistics Centre.

The training course suits people with or without a related academic background, providing an overview of the range of concepts and issues associated with ABS labour statistics. It also explores the data produced by both household and employer based collections, and highlights the range of data available.

Introduction to Labour Statistics training courses are generally held in each state capital each year, with courses scheduled in Sydney and Canberra in the remainder of 2010.
