PREVIOUS RELEASES

1994 - 2000

Between 1994 and 2000, a question on Indigenous status was included in the LFS for one month (usually February) every year. The information collected provided a snapshot for that one month in each year, and was published in Occasional Paper: Labour Force Characteristics of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, Experimental Estimates from the Labour Force Survey, 1994 - 2000 (cat. no. 6287.0).

Due to the small sample size, dissemination of Indigenous data was limited to male and females by labour force status, across broad geographical regions of Australia. Data was not released by age group or by state and territory.

Due to major differences in the estimation methodology used to produce these previous estimates, comparisons should not be made with estimates in this publication.

2002 - 2007

The Past Releases of this publication (also known as Labour Force Characteristics of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, Experimental Estimates from the Labour Force Survey between 2002 and 2006) use the same methodology as the current release.

However, the previous estimates are not strictly comparable with the current estimates. The current estimates, including the revisions to the estimates for 2008 and 2009, have been benchmarked to meet the latest Indigenous and non-Indigenous civilian 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) and the June 2010 release of Australian Demographic Statistics, Jun 2010 (cat. no. 3101.0).

The current estimates are also published based on the geographical remoteness defined in the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC), July 2010 (cat. no. 1216.0). Estimates provided in previous releases are based on earlier versions of this geographic classification and are not strictly comparable to the current edition.
