Hours Worked statistics shows the distribution of employment hours in Sutherland 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:

  • The demands of jobs in the industry and requirement to work overtime;
