Table 20. Employment by Industry
This table is compiled from data collected in the Labour Force Survey. The scope of this survey excludes members of the permanent defence forces, some diplomatic personnel, overseas residents in Australia and members of non-Australian defence forces stationed in Australia. This table has been adjusted to include members of the permanent defence forces.
This table shows the number of employees and employed persons in each industry. An employed person is described as either an employee, an employer, an own account worker or a contributing family worker. The number of employees and employed persons are shown on a full time, part time and full time equivalent basis.
The employees and employed persons data is based on Labour force data taken from ABS Catalogue Number 6291.0.55.003. For further information regarding the scope, coverage and reliability of these estimates please see https://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/6202.0Explanatory%20Notes1Nov%202010?OpenDocument.
