The proportion of employed people aged 15 years and over who worked 35 hours or less in the week prior to the census was 40% in the Southern Tasmania (Statistical Division, or SD) and 38% in the Greater Hobart (SD), compared with 33% for Australia as a whole.

Specifically, information is presented for four SD regions in Tasmania.
