These products contain data from the monthly Labour Force Survey and the related Pregnancy and Employment Transitions supplementary survey.
Presents employment transitions information on birth mothers of a child under two years of age living with them at the time of interview in November 2011.
In situations where women had more than one child under the age of two, data was collected in respect of the employment transitions of women around the most recent birth (i.e the youngest child).
Data collected about women's job during pregnancy; first job started or returned to after the birth; current job details; partner's job while the woman was pregnant; partner's first job started or returned to after the birth; and partner's current job details are cross-classified by characteristics such as income, industry and occupation and demographic characteristics.
The microdata enables users to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data. Steps to confidentialise the dataset are taken to ensure the integrity of data and maintain confidentiality of respondents. This includes removing any information that might uniquely identify an individual, reducing the level of detail for some items and collapsing some categories.
