Research output: Book/ReportOther report


This report presents a profile of women's employment and their experience in the New South Wales (NSW) labour market. The report has been commissioned by the Office for Women's Policy, NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet, to provide the most up to date available information on women’s labour force status in NSW. The methodology employed in this report comprises a review of existing statistics on women's working lives in NSW and a comprehensive literature review and analysis on women's quality part-time work. The report brings together existing statistical collections in NSW and Australia to provide a statistical profile of women's working lives in NSW. Analysis of the primary data was supplemented with a range of secondary sources that assisted in explaining differences between women and men, different groups of women and changes in the labour market status of women over time. A review of the academic literature on quality part-time work was also undertaken and incorporated into the report.
