Geographic distribution of the Australian dental labour force 2003 presents results from the 2003 national dental labour force data collection. The collection includes all dentists, dental therapists, dental hygienists and dental prosthetists across Australia. This publication presents the overall numbers and the practice status of the dental labour force in each state and territory, across geographic remoteness regions and nationally. Other statistics describe the demographic distribution, area and type of practice and the usual hours worked per week of the four dental occupational groups. Where possible, the results are compared with those from previous dental labour force collections.
