COMPARISON TO PREVIOUS ISSUES
Previously published estimates released in earlier editions of Labour Force Characteristics of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians (cat. no. 6287.0), while similar, are not strictly comparable with the estimates in this release due to:
- revisions to Indigenous population estimates, which are currently based on the September 2009 release of Experimental Estimates and Projections, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, 1991 to 2021 (cat. no. 3238.0);
- revisions to non-Indigenous population estimates, which are currently based on the Jun 2011 release of Australian Demographic Statistics, Jun 2011 (cat. no. 3101.0);
- revisions to geographical remoteness, which is currently based on the latest Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC), July 2011 (cat. no. 1216.0); and
- changes in methodology for estimates published for 1994-2000.
