Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice:

(1)   What are the most recent figures available for unemployed married males, single males and females in each of the Dubbo, Coonabarabran, Narrabri, Gunnedah and Moree districts of New South Wales.

(2)   Are figures available of the number of married males, single males and females who, in fact, are employed in the above-mentioned districts.

Senator WRIGHT - The Minister for Labour and National Service has provided the following information to the honourable senator's question:

(1)   Commonwealth Employment Service statistics are collected on a District Office area basis and are not available for individual local government areas. The areas of Gunnedah and Moree are included in the Narrabri District Office area while Coonabarabran lies within the Dubbo District Office area. Consequently only statistics relating to the Narrabri and Dubbo District Office areas as a whole can be supplied.

There is no breakdown available by marital status of unemployed males registered with the Commonwealth Employment Service, but such a breakdown is available for unemployed females.

Statistics of persons registered as unemployed with the CES in the DEO areas of Narrabri and Dubbo, dissected by males, married and single females, as at end-January 1972 are shown in the following table.


(a)   Persons who when registered with the Commonwealth Employment Service claimed that they were not employed and who were recorded as unplaced at the Friday nearest the end of the month. Includes those referred to employers and any who had obtained employment without notifying the CES. All recipients of Unemployment Benefit are included.

(2)   Statistics of employment in local government areas are collected by the Bureau of Census and Statistics only at Census time, and are not cross-classification by marital status. Figures for the 1971 Census are not yet available. The latest figures are those of the 1966 Census, and are set out below:
