This publication focuses on the proportion of underemployment for part-time workers. It brings in underemployment rates and levels to provide context. It explores personal, household and job variables, to build a picture of who the underemployed people are. Both potential employers and policy-makers are interested in this group.
Due to the seasonal nature of underemployment, our focus is annual where possible, averaging data across March, June, September, and December quarters in 2017 as the most-recent full year of data available.
