ABARE Survey on Indigenous People in Mining, Financial Year 2000/2001 -->
D. Data Outputs
D1 Data outputs
D1. Please specify the principal outputs or data items to be produced. (D1)
Note. Refers to the main data items to be produced by the survey (eg turnover of business, satisfaction with a government program the business is participating in), how they will be cross-classified (eg by geography, industry, size, sector of business, etc) -- this could be in the form of a list of tables.
A major role of the ABARE survey is to assess the current relationship between the mining industry and local indigenous communities from a mining industry perspective. The reference year for the study is the 2001-02 financial year. In particular, the survey will collect information on:
Return to top
- Production information by mineral resource
- Indigenous employment statistics (including size of labour force, full time versus part time status, gender, occupation types, highest education completed, working hours, income, age of employees, length of employment)
- Information on education and training programs used by indigenous employees
- Proximity of mine site to local indigenous communities
- Information on the economic contribution to local/regional indigenous communities
Information is required at several different levels. These include:
- At the aggregate level
- By size of mine site (measured by production levels)
- By mineral resource
- By location (state, region)
- By full time/part time status
- By gender,
and other segmentations accounted for in the survey.
For qualitative questions, responses will be summarised using histograms. For quantitative questions, responses will be summarised using graphs such as histograms, descriptive statistics, and economic indexes. For the questions that require brief responses, results will be summarised. Aggregated results will be presented in an ABARE research report for DITR.
D2 Use of standards
What consideration has been given to the use of standards? Please specify. (D2)
Note. Should include standard data items (such as employment, housing, etc) and standard classifications (such as industry, geography, commodity, etc.). Should not include market research processing standards.
Standard data items used in this survey include some employment definitions, such as average annual wages, average hours worked, occupation classifications.

D3 Data consistency
What consideration has been given to making data item definitions consistent between repeats of this survey or across other surveys? (D3)
This has been considered and incorporated where applicable. In particular, for the standard measures mentioned in question D2.
