The Online Services Report (OSR) collection contains 2 measures of the workforce of organisations—full-time equivalent (FTE) staff and FTE vacancies.

Full-time equivalent

Full-time equivalent (FTE) is a standard measure of the size of a workforce that takes into account both the number of workers and the hours that each works. For example, if a workforce comprises 2 people working full-time 40 hours a week and 2 working half-time, this is the same as 3 working full-time—an FTE of 3.

In the OSR this is the count of:

  • employed staff—how many FTE positions an organisation paid the wages or salary for at 30 June
  • visiting staff—how many staff worked for but were not paid for by the organisation during the collection period
  • vacant positions—how many vacant positions there were at 30 June.

The following boxes show key results for 2019–20. Clicking on a box will go to more information on the selected topic.
