The Australian Public Service (APS) Statistical Bulletin: December 2017 presents a summary of employment under the Public Service Act 1999 to assist agencies with workforce planning and benchmarking against APS averages.

This current edition presents a summary of employment data and trends for staff employed as at 31 December 2017. It explores key changes to the APS workforce over the most recent decade, including its size, diversity and regional distribution.

This short bulletin is complemented by a range of data tables for HR and workforce planning practitioners to investigate the underlying statistics in greater detail.

The bulletin continues the APSC’s long tradition of reporting on APS employment trends and serves as an important public record.
