ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication presents information about children aged 5 to 14 years who worked in the last 12 months. Statistics in this publication were obtained from the Child Employment Survey, conducted throughout Australia in June 2006 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS). The survey collected details about whether children worked, when they worked, their reasons for working and their working arrangements.
As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
