People in Dairy 2013

Client:  Dairy Australia Ltd.

This report summarises key trends in the dairy workforce between 2006 and 2011. The report draws on Census data released in 2006 (ABS, 2007) and 2011 (ABS, 2012), and focuses on both national trends, as well as regional differences between eight dairy regions. Whilst it is difficult to draw out overarching trends because there is significant inter-regional variation, and the Census data (collected in 2006 and 2011) only provides snapshots around particularly turbulent economic conditions relating to the global financial crisis, the analysis nonetheles.
