Introduction: The Characteristics of Employment Survey presents information on all employed persons according to their status of employment. The framework below classifies jobholders to a status of employment on the basis of their main job that is, the job in which they usually worked the most hours.
The status of employment category groups are:
- Owner managers of incorporated enterprises (OMIEs); and
- Owner managers of unincorporated enterprises (OMUEs).
Employees are then further classified according to whether they had paid leave entitlements, that is whether they had paid sick and/or paid holiday leave, while OMIEs and OMUEs are further classified according to whether they had employees.
