Anti-Poverty Week 2019 Research

Continuing the gender-based analysis of women in the ACT labour market in 2014, for Anti Poverty Week 2019 the Women’s Centre for Health Matters and the ACT Council of Social Service released an updated analysis of ACT labour market data and future trends, focusing on wages, levels of qualification and growth across major industries. The report – titled Creating Opportunity or Entrenching Disadvantage? 5 Years on – ACT Labour Market Data Update – draws on existing publicly available labour market data to consider the labour market operation and outlook in Canberra, and how these affect the work opportunities and incomes that are earned by women in the ACT. Now 5 years later, the trends we identified in 2014 which disadvantaged women in the labour market have continued in 2019. Find the report below:
