Public Administration and Safety includes government administration, and services that maintain or enforce public order and regulations. There was subdued employment growth over the past five years but employment has fallen over the last year. The ACT (which is the location of the majority of the Australian Government’s administration) has a relatively high share of this industry’s employment.
This workforce is highly skilled (more than three quarters hold post-school qualifications), relatively old (just 6% are aged 15 to 24 years) and full-time work is common.
Public Administration and Safety employment is projected to increase by 9.3% over the five years to May 2022.
