NOTES RELATING TO MAY ISSUE
See page 5 for details on the following:
ANNUAL SEASONAL REANALYSIS
The annual seasonal reanalysis was conducted on April 2013 estimates. See the article on page 7 of this issue for more information.
NEW LABOUR FORCE SAMPLE DESIGN
The new labour force sample is being phased-in over four month from May to August 2013. See the article on page 10 of this issue for more information.
Estimates of monthly and quarterly changes shown on the front cover and used in the commentary have been calculated using unrounded estimates, and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movements obtained from the rounded estimates. The graphs on the front cover also depict unrounded estimates.
The estimates in this publication are based on a sample survey. Published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability (see pages 40 and 41). The interval bounded by two standard errors is the 95% confidence interval, which provides a way of looking at the variability inherent in estimates. There is a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
