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?'
The occupations of The Hills Shire's regional labour force are indicative of the socio-economic status of the region; the skill and qualification levels of the labour force; the access that the labour force has to employment opportunities; and what types of jobs are on offer.
With other labour force statistics, such as Age, Educational Qualifications and Income, Occupation is a key component of evaluating the knowledge, experience and skill-levels that industry in The Hills Shire can draw upon.
This data describes the occupations (by sex) in which employed personss 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 labour force region 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. 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.
For more information please refer to the 2006 Census Dictionary, and the 2006 Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO).
