The employment data items cover the full-time or part-time status of employment, the type of employment, and whether a person has more than one job.
Some of the detailed employment data was not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS), but was collected in the following supplementary surveys and appended to the longitudinal data.
- Forms of Employment, Australia (FOES, cat. no. 6359.0)
Every November from the people employed in seven-eighths of the LFS sample
- Employee Earnings, Benefits and Trade Union Membership, Australia (EEBTUM, cat. no. 6310.0)
Every August from the employees in seven-eighths of the LFS sample
- Labour Mobility, Australia (LMS, cat. no. 6209.0)
February every 2 years from seven-eighths of the LFS sample
- Multipurpose Household Survey, Australia (MPHS, cat. no. 4100.0)
Every month from a selected person per household in one-eighth of the LFS sample.
Note: Information obtained in the MPHS is always collected via a personal interview, and so does not relate to the data item Respondent detail [RESPTYPC], which only relates to the data items collected in the LFS and other supplementary surveys.
