INTENTIONS TO RETIRE FROM THE LABOUR FORCE

This data item outlines how someone intends to transition from employment to retirement.

This data item is not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS) and is derived from the Retirement and Retirement Intentions, Australia (cat. no. 6238.0) topic of the Multipurpose Household Survey, Australia (MPHS, cat. no. 4100.0). The topic is run every 2 years and collected every month over a financial year period from a selected person per household in the out-going group of the LFS (the one-eighth of the LFS sample that has been in the survey for the full 8 months). The periods that relate to this release of the CURF are July 2008 to June 2009 and July 2010 to December 2010.

Note: Information obtained in the MPHS is always collected via a personal interview, and so does not relate to the data item Respondent detail [RESPTYPC], which only relates to the data items collected in the LFS and other supplementary surveys.
