Mr Lynch asked the Minister for Labour, upon notice:

What (a) increase in number and (b) percentage increase in the labour market was due to (i) migrants and non-migrants (ii) males (iii) females (iv) juniors and (v) adults in each of the last 10 calendar years.

Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The Commonwealth Statistician has supplied the following information in reply to the honourable member's question.

Estimates of the average numbers of persons in the civilian labour force in each year from 1964to 1972, derived from the quarterly population survey, were used to calculate the increases in number and percentage increases shown below.

(i)   Estimates tor migrants and non-migrants became available only in early 1972: no estimates of annual change are available.

(ii)   Males in the Civilian Labour Force


The quarterly population survey was instituted on an Australia-wide basis in February 1964: information is therefore not available for the years 1962 and 1963. Information is not available for the age groups 15-20 years and 21 years and over (i.e. juniors/adults); information has been supplied for the closest possible age groupings.

Final estimates for movement in 1971-72 in the areas covered above are not yet available and I shall provide the information by, way of a supplementary answer as soon as it does become available.
