Important notes and usage information

  1. The figures for working days lost and workers involved have been rounded and consequently the sum of the constituent items may not precisely agree with the totals.

  2. The number of stoppages for the industry groups shown may not sum to the total for all industries and services as some stoppages which affect more than one broad industry group have been counted once only in the total for all industries and services. This similarly applies to regional breakdowns.

  3. Cells containing a hyphen (-) represent a zero or less than 50.
