Number of survey responses and percentage of total responses by industry, 2022

In total, 87,178 Victorian public sector employees voluntarily responded to the People matter survey 2022.

We don’t show the data from 2020 as some organisations couldn’t take part in the 2020 survey as they were responding to the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and floods. Therefore, the 2020 data isn’t a true representation of the public sector.

We reserve the right to change or correct information at any time.
