Limitations of the data
Non-response rate for 2013: 2.8 percent
Non-response and responses that could not be classified or did not provide the type of information asked for are usually grouped together and called 'Not elsewhere included'. 5.1 percent of the subject population was coded to 'Not elsewhere included' in 2013.
Distributions of occupation met expectation. At the lowest level of the classification there were some issues with incorrect coding. Occupation is a write-in response, so is subject to greater subjectivity, which can impact on the quality of data. Some written responses may be difficult to decipher, impacting on the quality of data from paper forms.
The subject population for this variable is the employed census usually resident population aged 15 years and over.
