PREGNANCY AND WORK TRANSITIONS SURVEY (PaWTS)

The Pregnancy and Work Transitions Survey (PaWTS) will be conducted in November 2005 as a supplement to the Monthly Labour Force Survey.

The PaWTS will provide important statistics about the number of women who work while pregnant and some aspects of women's working experiences while pregnant and after returning to paid work, as well as the use of leave by women and their partners following the birth of a child. The scope of the survey will be women who are birth mothers of children aged under 2 years.

Results are expected to be available in August 2006. An information consultancy service and a web-based product entitled Pregnancy and Work Transitions, Australia, November 2005 will be available at the time of release.
