Foreward

The Australian Public Service Statistical Bulletin 2013–14 presents a summary of employment under the Public Service Act 1999 at 30 June 2014 and during the 2013–14 financial year, as well as summary data for the past 15 years. The data in this publication is a resource for agencies to assist them in benchmarking their workforce against other agencies and APS averages. A more comprehensive analysis of the APS is provided in the State of the Service Report 2013–14.

The data source on APS employees is the APS Employment Database (APSED), which contains data provided by agencies, sourced from their HR systems. The Australian Public Service Commission (the Commission) continually works with agencies to improve the quality and timeliness of the data they provide to APSED. To ensure that sound conclusions can be drawn from the data, it is important that agencies assign a high priority to providing accurate and timely data to the Commission.
