by Wright, Jeffrey | Australian Bureau of Statistics. Analytical Services Branch | Bishop, Glenys | Ayre, Tim.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic.Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) catalogue no. 1351.0.55.027 2009Description: HTML.Other title: Migrants quality study.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Research PaperSummary: As part of the Australian Bureau of Statistics' Census Data Enhancement project, the Migrants Quality Study was conducted to assess the feasibility of linking the Department of Immigration and Citizenship's Settlement Database (SDB) to the Statistical Longitudinal Census Dataset (SLCD), without the use of name and address as linking variables. This paper provides some background to the Migrants Quality Study, a brief description of the linking process, a thorough evaluation of the quality of the linked data, and then associated discussion about the usefulness of the linked data. ; The results from this quality study indicate that linking the SDB to the SLCD is feasible and can produce useful information that no other data source currently provides. However, some quality issues have been identified and need to be thoroughly understood to ensure that the linked data is correctly interpreted and appropriately used.Availability: (1)

The ABS has developed four indexes to allow ranking of regions/areas, providing a method of determining the level of social and economic well-being in each region. Each of the four indexes summarises different aspects of the socio-economic conditions of people living in an area; each is based upon a different set of social and economic information from the 2006 Census. The indexes provide more general measures of socio-economic status than is given by measuring, for example, income or unemployment alone. SEIFA has a number of applications, including research into the relationship between socio-economic status and various health and educational outcomes, determining areas that require funding and services, and identifying new business opportunities." -- [Publisher website]Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Vocational qualifications, employment status and income : 2006 census analysis /

by Daly, Anne | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Two features of the labour market for vocationally qualified workers are explored in this technical paper: the likelihood of self-employment versus wage employment and the determinants of income. The analysis showed that demographic, occupational and local labour market characteristics all influence the likelihood of self-employment. Self-employed people were more likely to be older, married and born in a non-English speaking country. High self-employment was found for managers, males in construction and female hospitality managers. Generally, employees were shown to earn more than self-employed workers, suggesting that the self-employed are willing to sacrifice monetary income for other perceived benefits of self-employment.Availability: (1)

by Australian Council of Trade Unions.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Council of Trade Unions 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Working Australia Paper 6/2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: "ACTU D 48/2011" INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This report, the first in what will be a series released using data from the Working Australia Census 2011, contains the key findings from the largest survey of workers that Australian unions have ever conducted. It also contains comparisons with a data set provided by a benchmark public opinion poll of the same questions. ; This project reflects the determination of the ACTU and Australian unions to give ordinary working people a stronger voice about social and economic issues- particularly about their experiences of work, their key concerns, and about the way policies impact their work and family life. The Census is one way of having a conversation with rank and file union members about their concerns and priorities. The aim was very specifically not to simply replicate work that is already done by pollsters and academics on attitudes and issues.Availability: (1)
