The 2011 Census results showed that:
- while most people worked full-time, part-time working had become much more prevalent over the preceding decade, and at the time of the Census, 30.7% of all those in employment worked part-time (26.2% in 2001)
- Men were still much less likely to work part-time than women, but the number of men in part-time employment grew more rapidly than the number of women working part-time since 2001
- Fewer people worked more than 48 hours per week than was the case in 2001
