Target 13: Work-life balance

Disaggregated by Gender


Explanatory Comments

The Australian Work and Life Index (AWALI) measure was developed by the University of South Australia’s Centre for Work and Life, with support from industry partners including the South Australian Government.

AWALI is a national survey of work–life outcomes amongst working Australians. The South Australian AWALI is derived from a telephone survey of around 1,000 South Australian workers.

AWALI is comprised of a composite index bringing together five measures of work-life interference - the extent to which paid work interferes with activities outside of work; restrictions on time with family or friends; work-to-community interference; overall satisfaction with work life balance; and frequency of feeling rushed or pressed for time. The overall work-life index is scaled from 0 to 100. A lower score on this scale indicates better work-life balance.

AWALI commenced in 2007 and was repeated annually until 2010. From 2012 it is being conducted on a bi-annual basis. This information will be updated once the latest data is available.
