Rationale

Labour force status is a key labour market variable. It allows analysis of the employed, unemployed and those persons not in the labour force.

Classification of labour force status

Labour force status is derived from the following classifications:

  • job indicator 1, 2 and 3
  • found work
  • seeking work
  • job search methods
  • available for work.

Labour force status is a flat classification with three categories – excluding residual categories. Job indicator 1, 2 and 3, found work, seeking work and available for work are all flat classifications with two categories – excluding residual categories. The job search classification is a flat classification of nine categories – excluding residual categories.

The residual categories are defined in Glossary and references.
