The last 20 years has seen a 60% boom in Western Australia's workforce, says the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
Much of the growth has been influenced by broader population (including overseas migration) and economic growth, but greater workforce participation (particularly women), more flexible working arrangements in the form of part-time and casual work, as well as an increasing number of mature aged workers staying in the labour force have also contributed strongly.
This issue of Western Australian Statistical Indicators also includes a feature article examining the health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Western Australia.
More details are in Western Australian Statistical Indicators (cat. no. 1367.5).
