These data were obtained from the 2001 Census, Key Statistics. The table provides information in number and percentages on Population by Number of Hours Worked.
Any person who carried out paid work in the week before the Census, whether self-employed or as an employee, is described as employed or in employment. ‘Paid work’ includes casual or temporary work, even if only for one hour; being on a government-sponsored training scheme; being away from a job/business ill, on maternity leave, on holiday or temporarily laid off; or doing paid or unpaid work for their own or family business.
Number of hours a week a person usually works in their main job is used to derive whether a person is working full-time (31 hours or more a week) or part-time (30 hours or less per week). Hours worked is the average number of hours worked a week for the last four weeks before the Census. The average (mean) weekly hours worked is calculated by dividing the sum of the hours worked by each person (aged 16-74 in employment) by the number of people (aged 16-74 in employment).
