This paper presents staffing information (as at 30 June 2001) provided to the State Services Commission (SSC) by Public Service departments. The information comes from the Human Resource Capability (HRC) survey, which gathers anonymous unit record data on all staff in Public Service departments. The report includes a wide range of information relevant to Human Resource (HR) management and Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO). Information on union membership is included for the first time.
In May of this year, the Minister of State Services agreed to discontinue the previous collection of summary employment information from other selected State sector organisations. Given the partial and incomplete coverage of this survey, he decided that the compliance costs of the survey could no longer be justified.
