INTRODUCTION

Status in Employment is a classification of employed persons according to the nature of their relationship to the enterprise in which they work.

The concepts and definitions relating to the measurement of Status in Employment are detailed in Chapter 4.1 of Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6102.0.55.001).

The standard term for the variable is Status in Employment.

The term Status in Employment is used in the international standard as outlined in the International Classification of Status in Employment (15th International Conference of Labour Statisticians, 1993). The term Employment Status should be avoided as it is easily confused with the concept of Labour Force Status. The classification Employment Type has previously been used by the ABS but is now redundant as the groups identified within the Employment Type classification are now specified in Status in Employment.

Status in Employment is an attribute of the measurement unit 'Job'.
