Bungy Jump Masters, Baristas, and Librarians:

How many live in your area? Find out with the latest release of data from the 2006 Census. New data includes employment, hours worked, occupation and industry, journey to work, highest educational qualification, and field of study.

Check out the Census Tables topic 'Occupation by Sex - Alternative View: Culture and Leisure' to find the number of Librarians or Bungy Jump Masters in your selected area (data is available down to a Suburb or Statistical Local Area geographic level); or view the counts for occupations in the areas of Agriculture, Health, Information and Communication Technology, or Tourism and Hospitality.

Occupation data is available coded according the new classification: the 2006 Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO), but is also available based on the previous classification: the 1993 Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO), which was used in the 2001 Census. Responses on Census forms as to the main job held during the week prior to Census Night are assigned to the occupations listed in the Classification. The classification listing is hierarchical, allowing occupation data to be grouped to different levels - major, sub-major, minor etc, depending upon the level of detail required.
