Australia Day Award - 30 Years Service for Labour Force Interviewer
Jenny Bromley was presented with her award for 30 years of service with the ABS at a special Australia Day morning tea. Jenny works on the Labour Force Survey (LFS) and was joined at morning tea by a group of past and present members of the LFS Interviewers Panel who have, between them, amassed an incredible 300 years of service collecting information for the LFS and associated surveys.
The LFS was first conducted in 1960 and the information collected is obtained from occupants of randomly selected dwellings by specially trained interviewers, like Jenny. The Year Book 2005 features an article on the history of the Monthly Labour Force Survey.
