*Workforce includes those employed and those looking for work - the unemployed.
**Average calculated for previous three months.
***The Roy Morgan employment estimates for May 2014 are based to a lower estimate of the Australian population aged 14 or more (from 19,365,000 in the original April figures to 19,205,000 for the revised April figures and now at 19,232,000 in May). The lower Roy Morgan national population estimate is a result of ABS revisions after fully including the results of the most recent ABS Census.
#The Gillard Government’s ‘Fair Work Australia’ Act was implemented on January 1, 2010, replacing the Howard Government’s ‘Work Choices’ Legislation.
