The statistics in this release were compiled from the Participation, Job Search and Mobility, Australia (PJSM) survey conducted throughout Australia in February 2018 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS). Questions were asked of persons aged 15 years and over.

This survey informs on the following broad labour market issues: Labour force participation potential; underemployment and marginal attachment; as well as job search experience and labour mobility. This information can be cross classified by characteristics such as duration of job search, last job details, hours worked, industry and occupation as well as personal characteristics.

Care should be taken when comparing the estimates from 2018 PJSM survey with previous years topics as Persons Not In The Labour Force (PNILF) and Underemployed Workers (UEW) were previously collected in September and Job Search Experience (JSE) in July and Labour Mobility (LMOB) was collected in February. Collection of data from this combined survey was undertaken in February. The populations used in each may not be directly comparable. Please see the Time series comparability tab in each time series spreadsheet for further information.


Participation, Job Search and Mobility 2018 microdata will be available via TableBuilder (cat. no. 6226.0.00.001). For more information see About TableBuilder.


As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
