AbstractThe aim of the study was to establish the extent and type of employment in retail and related service activities in shopping centres of different types in Canberra. Employers were asked about ownership of the business, location of headquarters, duration of occupancy on current site and any relocations, staff numbers including full-time, part-time and casual staff, staff duties, whether the firm offered part-time hours for particular categories of employees, and size of firm. Employees were asked about length of tenure of current job, previous work activity, type of current work, working hours, journey to work, place of residence, age on leaving school, further education, and source of information in applying for current position. Background variables were age, sex, marital status and number of children below and at school age.

Methodology Content
Sampling Procedureno sampling (total universe) The Woden Valley system of shopping areas was chosen for census. It is comprised of: 2 Centre Type Size m * Woden town centre Regional consisting of Woden Plaza 42, 730 Adelaide House 1,600 Remainder of town centre 3,240 Southlands, Mawson District 7,568 Curtin District 8,255 Farrer Neighbourhood 1,806 Torrens Neighbourhood 2,255 Pearce Neighbourhood 3, 520 Chifley Neighbourhood 2, 060 Lyons Neighbourhood 2, 062 Hughes Neighbourhood 2, 540 Garran Neighbourhood 2,770 Mawson Neighbourhood 460 * Includes areas devoted to service activities and petrol filling stations. The Woden Regional Shopping Centre consists of three sections. The largest and most important is an air conditioned two level shopping mall with a department store, two supermarkets and four variety and discount stores together with a range of specialist shops. Adjacent to the mall and linked at ground and first floor level is a shopping area in Adelaide House which is primarily an office block. Thirdly are a series of shops located around the paved square creating the focal point of the town centre. Together the three shop groups constitute the Woden Regional Centre but it is useful to distinguish between those shops in the mall (Woden Plaza) and those elsewhere. The two district centres of Curtin and Mawson each have a large supermarket as the major tenant. The neighbourhood centres are designed to be within walking distance of their suburban consumers and provide a range of basic convenience food and non-food items sold through approximately 12 units. Within the Woden Valley the only retail and service establishments left out of the study were those in the Phillip Service Trades Area which provided a further 15000 sq. metres (approx) of retail floor space.

Mode of Data Collectionpersonal interview self-completion (distribute, mail back) Two types of questionnaires were administered. One, a personal interview questionnaire, sought information from the owners/managers of all establishments in each centre. The second, for each employee to complete and mail back, was left at the business and was distributed to employees by the owner/manager. Owners and workers not receiving a regular wage were excluded from this second questionnaire. The two questionnaires were cross-referenced so that employer questionnaires could be related to type of firm and particular shopping centre.
CommentThe aim of the study was to establish the extent and type of employment in retail and related service activities in shopping centres of different types in Canberra. Employers were asked about ownership of the business, location of headquarters, duration of occupancy on current site and any relocations, staff numbers including full-time, part-time and casual staff, staff duties, whether the firm offered part-time hours for particular categories of employees, and size of firm. Employees were asked about length of tenure of current job, previous work activity, type of current work, working hours, journey to work, place of residence, age on leaving school, further education, and source of information in applying for current position. Background variables were age, sex, marital status and number of children below and at school age.
