Experienced labour force 15 years and over by occupation and sex, by census metropolitan areas (2006 Census)
Definitions
 
Experienced labour force: Persons who, during the week (Sunday to Saturday) prior to Census Day (May 16,2006), were employed and the unemployed who had last worked for pay or in self‑employment in either 2005 or 2006. The experienced labour force can also be derived by excluding from the labour force those unemployed persons 15 years of age and over who have never worked or who had last worked prior to January 1,2005 only.
 
Occupation : Refers to the kind of work persons were doing during the reference week, as determined by their kind of work and the description of the main activities in their job. If the person did not have a job during the week (Sunday to Saturday) prior to enumeration (May 16, 2006), the data relate to the job of longest duration since January 1,2005. Persons with two or more jobs were to report the information for the job at which they worked the most hours. This variable has been created in order to facilitate comparison of occupation data coded to the National Occupational Classification for Statistics 2006 (NOC-S 2006) with 1991 and 1996 census occupation data coded to the 1991 Standard Occupational Classification (1991 SOC).
 
Census metropolitan area: Area consisting of one or more neighbouring municipalities situated around a major urban core. A census metropolitan area must have a total population of at least 100,000 of which 50,000 or more live in the urban core.
