This data describes the occupations (by sex) of people employed in the selected industry. Includes all persons working in the area regardless of where they live. Relates to the main job held in the week prior to Census. Data for occupations are coded using the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO). The occupation classification is updated periodically to take account of emerging occupation groups and changes to the structure of the labour force.
Data are presented for the broad occupation groupings. For 2006 these were coded using ANZSCO, the most recent classification. These are presented in economy.id® where no time series is required. For time series, the data are presented using the older ASCO 2nd edition classification, to ensure data comparability.
