Managing Care and Work

Managing Care and Work, NSW, October 2005 (cat. no. 4912.1) is due to be released on 5 April. The publication will contain results from the Managing Care and Work survey which was conducted throughout NSW during October 2005.

The survey collected information on the relationship between respondents' unpaid caring responsibilities and their paid work situation for the six months prior to the survey. Information was collected on the frequency of care provided and selected characteristics of the recipients of care; carers' sector of employment; the type of work arrangements carers used (or wanted to use) to facilitate caring for someone; and the reasons carers could not use desired work arrangements.

The survey also asked what, if any, changes had been made to work arrangements in order to care for someone; whether the main reason for self employment was to make caring easier; and the main source of income for carers not looking for paid work due to caring responsibilities.
