Cook Shire

Local workers - Hours worked - All industries

34.4% of All industries female local workers in the Cook Shire are employed part-time and 62.8% are employed full-time.

Hours Worked statistics shows the distribution of employment hours in the Cook 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 availability and take-up of part-time work in the industry;
  • The demands of jobs in the industry and requirement to work overtime;
  • The age and family responsibilities of people working in the industry; and
  • The gender profile of workers in the industry (due to family commitments, females are often more likely to work part-time).

Hours Worked data should be viewed in conjunction with Age structure, Occupation and Income.
