Derived from the two Census questions, 'In the main job held last week, what was the person's occupation?' and 'What are the main tasks that the person himself/herself usually performs in that occupation?'
Occupations are a key component of evaluating the knowledge, experience and skill-levels that industry can draw upon locally. It should be viewed with other indicators, such as Age, Educational Qualifications and Income for a comprehensive analysis of The Hills Shire's labour force.
When comparing the Occupations of the people who reside in The Hills Shire (The Local Labour Force) with those who work in The Hills Shire (The Workforce), Occupation data indicates whether an economy draws on the skills offered by its own residents or on a different set of skills imported from elsewhere in the region.
This data describes the occupations (by sex) in which employed residents work. It applies only to people aged 15 and over who were employed in the week prior to Census. Includes employed people who usually reside in the local area regardless of where they work. 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.
For more information please refer to the 2006 Census Dictionary, and the 2006 Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO).

The abbreviation 'nfd' stands for Not Further Described, and relates to the situation where a response on the Census form could be coded to a broad category but not to a more specific sub-grouping within that category
