Engagement in Employment, Education and Training (EETP)

Engagement in Employment, Education and Training (EETP) classifies persons aged 15 years and over as Engaged or Not engaged in work and study according to the criteria outlined below. It is derived from the data items Labour Force Status (LFSP), Hours Worked (HRSP), Full-Time/Part-Time Student Status (STUP) and Age (AGEP). Data can be used to analyse groups of interest, such as youth, or people approaching retirement age, by adding Age to the table. For the 2006 and 2011 Censuses, data for this item can be derived based on existing data items - contact the National Information and Referral Service (NIRS) for this data.

The Fully engaged category includes persons who are engaged in either full-time work or study or who combine any hours of work with any hours of study.

The Partially engaged category includes persons who are either employed part-time or studying part-time. Examples include persons who are:
    • Employed part-time and Not attending an educational institution
    • Studying part-time and either Unemployed or Not in the Labour force.

The At least partially engaged category includes persons who are engaged in either study or in the labour force but did not provide enough information to determine if they were fully or partially engaged. An example would be a person who was studying part-time but who did not state their Labour Force status.

The Engagement status undetermined/Not stated category includes persons who did not state their student status and who were either unemployed, not in the labour force or their labour force status was not stated.

The Not engaged category includes persons who are unemployed or not in the labour force and who were not attending an educational institution.
