Comments:Help on this term

Most recent data available for 2012 CRC report: 2009 for medical and nursing/midwifery labour force survey data.

The scope of the workforce for each profession is defined as those employed in the profession. This excludes those who are registered with the profession but are retired, working outside the profession, on extended leave or working outside Australia.

Number registered on the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS) at 1 January 2011 could possibly be supplied for the 2012 report (with caveats).
