Central Coast Council area

Recent arrivals - Occupation of employment

In 2011, there were more recent overseas arrivals who worked as professionals in the Central Coast Council area than any other occupation.

The Central Coast Council area's occupation statistics quantify the occupations in which recent arrivals (who are residents) work. The work destination may be in the local area or elsewhere.

The type of work done by recent arrivals is influenced by their age structure, qualifications and migration stream. Many of Australia's recent migrants are skilled arrivals who fill identified skill gaps in particular occupation groups.

Derived from the two Census questions:

'In the main job held last week, what was the person's occupation?' and 'What are the main tasks that the person himself/herself usually performs in that occupation?'

People born overseas and arriving in Australia between 2006 and 9 Aug 2011, aged 15 years and over
