Typically, industries such as Retail Trade and Accommodation and Food Services, which employ many part-time workers, have lower FTE employment than total employment.

FTE employment is calculated directly by dividing the total hours worked in each industry by 38.

This can be done by directly comparing the area to its benchmark, or by using a location quotient to look at the relative size of industries.
