Labour Market Statistics National Statistics Centre

The Labour Market Statistics National Statistics Centre provides statistical leadership in the development, production and dissemination of labour market statistics. The area undertakes a range of activities to:

    • promote the effective use of labour statistics;
    • influence the development of national and international frameworks, and assist with their implementation; and
    • improve the relevance of labour market statistics produced by the ABS.

The Labour Market Statistics National Statistics Centre represents the interests of key users to ensure that their requirements are reflected in the program of ABS household and employer based collections. It promotes strategies for increasing the awareness of, and access to, both ABS and non-ABS data on labour market issues. The Centre seeks to improve users' understanding of labour market data to assist in the effective use of this data in analysis of labour market issues. One way of achieving this is through maintaining the Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6102.0.55.001).

Labour Employer Surveys Business Statistics Centre

The Labour Employer Surveys Business Statistics Centre is responsible for a suite of national surveys which provide information about the structure and performance of the Australian labour market.

Labour Force and Supplementary Surveys Household Survey Centre

The Labour Force and Supplementary Surveys Household Survey Centre is responsible for the management of the Monthly Population Survey (MPS) which provides extensive information covering Australian labour supply and demand, and workplace relations. The MPS includes the Labour Force Survey, Labour Supplementary Surveys (LSS) and the Multipurpose Household Survey (MPHS). The Labour Force Survey provides monthly estimates of the number of employed and unemployed people, the unemployment rate and the labour force participation rate. The LSS and MPHS collect information on a range of labour topics including forms of employment, job search experience, labour mobility, employee earnings, benefits and trade union memberships, underemployed workers, people not in the labour force, retirement, and work-related injuries.
