Derived from the Census question 'Last week, how many hours did the person work in all jobs?'
Hours Worked statistics shows the distribution of employment hours in The Hills Shire across each industry sector. Full-time employment is considered 35-hours and over.
The hours worked by employed people in a particular industry depend on a number of factors:
Hours Worked data should be viewed in conjunction with Age Structure, Occupation and Income.
This data describes the working hours (by sex) of employed persons employed in the selected industry. Includes all persons working in the area regardless of where they live. Relates specifically to hours worked the week prior to the Census. It is therefore only an indicator of hours worked and does not necessarily reflect the number of hours worked in an average week. If employed persons were away from work during Census week, hours worked will be lower. Relates to all jobs the worker holds, not just the main job referred to in the industry classification.
Workers are classified as full-time if they worked 35 hours or more in the week prior to Census, and part time if they worked less than this.
Note that the hours worked data relates to "all jobs", while the industry counted is what the respondent stated as their "main job".
