Service provider organisation—hours worked (volunteer/unpaid staff), total NNNNN
Identifying and definitional attributes
Metadata item type:
Hours worked per week—volunteer/unpaid staff
Community Services, Superseded 27/04/2007
The total hours worked by all volunteer/unpaid staff in a seven day week.
To assist in the analysis of staffing inputs and to enable a comparison of the staffing requirements of different service types. It is important to include volunteers due to the significant contribution they make within many organisations.
This metadata item is asking for actual staff hours worked by volunteer staff, not the rostered hours or full-time equivalent staff.
In some collections this metadata item may be specified as the hours on a specific week (such as the Commonwealth State/Territory Disability Agreement (CSTDA) National Minimum Data Set (NMDS), where the week leading up to the 'snapshot' collection day is the week counted). Other collections may specify a 'usual' week or an average week calculated from a number of weeks or the entire year.
