OTHER LABOUR STATISTICAL PUBLICATIONS


INTRODUCTION

The surveys outlined below examine subsets of entries to and/or exits from the labour force in detail.


VOLUNTARY WORK

Information on voluntary work is obtained from the General Social Survey (GSS), conducted throughout Australia from August to November. The results are published in Voluntary Work, Australia (cat. no. 4441.0).

The major aim of the voluntary work module is to collect data on rates of participation in voluntary work, the characteristics of people who volunteered and the types of organisations for which they worked. Four similar national voluntary work surveys have been conducted by the ABS before: the first as part of the Monthly Population Survey in 1995, the second on the Population Survey Monitor conducted over four quarters in 2000 and the third and fourth as part of the 2002 and 2006 GSS.


QUALIFICATIONS AND WORK

Qualifications and Work is a topic on the Multipurpose Household Survey (MPHS). Information on the educational history of Australians, and the relevance of each qualification to their working lives, is collected as a supplement to the LFS each month from January – December with the results published in Qualification and Work, Australia (cat. no. 4235.0). For more information on the content and methodology of this survey, refer to Chapter 22.4.


DISABILITY AND LABOUR FORCE PARTICIPATION

This publication looks at the characteristics of working-age people with disability and their involvement in the labour force. The results are published in Disability and Labour Force Participation (cat. no. 4433.0.55.006).

For more information about collection of the data, please refer to the Explanatory Notes of the Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers Summary of Findings, 2012 (cat. no. 4430.0).
