More frequent and detailed data on Barriers and Incentives
On 8 September 2022, the Australian Government announced additional funding for the Australian Bureau of Statistics to more frequently measure barriers and incentives to labour force participation. Starting with 2022-23 data, the ABS will now release data on barriers and incentives every year (rather than every two years), with a range of key measures on a quarterly basis.
The ABS is also continuing to partner across the Australian Public Service to identify additional data sources that can provide useful related insights. Examples of these initiatives can be found in Making greater use of other data.
