55 Status of Employment: Permanent employees employed under the Public Service Act constituted 62% of the public sector during 1986/87. That Ts 4% more than last year. Permanent employees not under the Act accounted for 23% which is slightly less than last year. The proportion of limited tenure staff remained at 12%. Nearly 4% of employees were on contract. Casual employees and trainees account for less than half a percent. Location of Employment; Figure 8 shows that over two thirds of employees were located in Darwin region during 1986/87. Regional employee proportions have varied little from the previous year, with Alice Springs accommodating 18 per cent, Katherine 6 per cent, East Arnhem 4 per cent and Barkly 3 per cent. Data Collection for the 1986/87 Report; Data on the Northern Territory public sector staffing has been gathered from Interpers, the Governments computerised staffing and establishment control system. The data on the system is not 100 per cent correct, this being due in part to changes in Northern Territory public sector structure and departmental profiles. However, the total and proportions are sufficient to give a realistic picture of the Northern Territory public sector during 1986/87.
