1. Information on hours of work enables: classification of employed persons according to the number of hours worked; and classification of employed persons into full-time and part-time status. The general notion of hours of work encompasses a number of related concepts: usual hours worked; hours actually worked; normal hours of work; and hours paid for (including both normal hours and overtime hours).

More detailed discussion of the concept of hours worked is available in the Labour Statistics Concepts Sources and Methods
