There are several data collections undertaken by the ABS which measure aspects of employment. Each has a different purpose, with different definitions and different collection methodologies. Data from several of these data sources are presented in this chapter which, taken together, provide a good picture of employment and voluntary work in the cultural sector in Australia. The chapter focuses mainly on the people who have paid work in cultural industries and occupations. Information is also presented on unpaid involvement which includes voluntary work. Different aspects of the cultural sector are selected from the data sources described below.
