1. Status in Employment is a classification of employed persons according to whether they are employees, employers, own account workers or contributing family. The status in employment classification is available from most ABS household surveys producing estimates of employment, including the Labour Force Survey, the Census of Population and Housing, and most Special Supplementary Surveys. The status in employment classification is not available from business surveys producing estimates of employee jobs. However, estimates of employee jobs from business surveys are related to, but not the same as, estimates of persons in paid employment (employees) from household surveys see Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods, Chapter 3.

2. The concepts and definitions relating to the measurement of status in employment are detailed in Labour Statistics Concepts Sources and Methods and are outlined briefly in this standard.
