Derived from the Census question 'Last week, how many hours did the person work in all jobs?'
This data shows the distribution of hours worked by employed residents in The Hills Shire's regional labour force. Full-time employment is considered 35-hours and over.
Employment hours in the region depend on a number of factors:
Hours Worked data should be viewed in conjunction with Gender, Age Structure, Occupation and Income for a more complete picture of The Hills Shire's regional employment statistics.
This data describes the working hours (by sex) of employed persons. 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 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.
