    OVERVIEW

    The October 1997 State Supplementary survey Part time, Casual and Temporary Employment was run to collect information on people who were employed as a part time, casual or temporary employee. Information was also collected on work arrangements (such as overtime, study leave, superannuation, and workers compensation).

    PURPOSE

    The main aim of the survey was to collect information on persons who usually work on a part-time, casual or temporary basis in their main job.

    SCOPE

    Scope

    The survey was conducted for all persons 15 years and over who were usual residents of private dwellings, except:

    • members of the permanent defence forces;
    • certain diplomatic personnel of overseas governments, customarily excluded from censuses and surveys;
    • overseas residents in Australia; and
    • members of non-Australian defence forces (and their dependants) stationed in Australia

    Residents of other non-private dwellings such as hospitals, motels and jails (included in the Monthly Population Survey) were excluded from this survey.

    Coverage

    In the survey, coverage rules were applied which aimed to ensure that each person was associated with only one dwelling, and hence had only one chance of selection in the survey.
