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.

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) – Census 2011 (experimental imputed) & 2016 – by place of work

Please note – The 2016 Census used a new methodology to “impute” a work location to people who didn’t state their workplace address. As a result, 2016 and 2011 place of work data are not normally comparable. To allow comparison between 2011 and 2016, .id has sourced a 2011 dataset from the ABS which was experimentally imputed using the same methodology. To provide this detail, Grow South East (South East Metropolitan Region) in 2011 had to be constructed from a best fit of Work Destination Zones (DZNs). While it may not be an exact match to the LGA or region boundary, it is considered close enough to allow some comparison. Users should treat this time series data with caution, however, and not compare directly with 2011 data from any other source.
