|Abstract:||One of the most significant changes to the Australian labour market in recent decades has been the rise in the share of part-time employment to account for nearly one-third of total employment. This article details the various supply and demand factors that have underpinned the increase in part-time employment, as well as some of the characteristics of part-time workers. Because there are some part-time workers who want to work additional hours, it is useful to consider underemployment as well as unemployment in measuring labour market spare capacity.||URL:||http://www.rba.gov.au/publications/bulletin/2017/sep/bu-0917-3a.html||Keywords:||Employment -- Labour Markets; Employment -- Underemployment; Employment -- Labour force supply; Employment -- Security of employment; Employment -- Hours; Employment -- Labour force participation||Research collection:||Journal Articles|
