Working population

The working population consists of all persons who were employed in the week prior to Census Night.

It is not possible to distinguish between workers working standard hours, and shift workers: the data collected relates to all workers.

The Working Population Profile contains tables showing the characteristics of the working population in a Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2).

See also Place of Work (POWP).
