AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL OF LABOUR ECONOMICS THEMATIC ISSUE - CALL FOR ARTICLES BASED ON SEARS

In early 2010, the Australian Journal of Labour Economics (AJLE) will publish a thematic issue dedicated to articles exploiting the expanded CURF from SEARS 2007. The analysis should be innovative and will be peer reviewed. The final selection lies with the editors of the AJLE. The deadline for submission of articles is the 31 August 2009. Articles should be submitted to Boyd.Hunter@anu.edu.au and Nicholas.Biddle@anu.edu.au.


LABOUR FORCE SURVEY

On 13 May 2009, the Australian Statistician announced the full re-instatement of the Labour Force Survey sample. The December 2009 estimates, released in January 2010, will be the first under the fully re-instated sample.


SURVEY OF JOB VACANCIES

On 13 May 2009, the Australian Statistician also announced the reinstatement of the Survey of Job Vacancies. The estimates for the November 2009 reference period will be the first under the re-instated survey.


FORMS OF EMPLOYMENT SURVEY

Results from the November 2008 Forms of Employment Survey (FOES) were released on 12 June 2009. The FOES has been released annually since 2004, and prior to this in 2001 and 1998. The November 2008 FOES was redeveloped to better capture information regarding people who work as independent contractors, as well as to collect information on the use of labour hire firms/employment agencies. For more information see Forms of Employment, Australia, November 2008 (cat. no. 6359.0), available free of charge on the ABS website <www.abs.gov.au>. A CURF for FOES is expected to be released in late 2009.

Final results from the August 2008 Survey of Employee Earnings and Hours (EEH) were released on 17 June 2009 in Employee Earnings and Hours, Australia, August 2008 (cat.no.6306.0). The EEH survey collects information from a sample of employers about the earnings, hours paid for, and methods of setting pay and other characteristics of selected employees.


RELEASE OF SURVEY OF EMPLOYEE EARNINGS AND HOURS 2006 CURF

The first CURF produced from the Survey of Employee Earnings and Hours (EEH) was released on 31 March 2009. The CURF, which was produced in respect of the May 2006 EEH survey, is available as an expanded CURF via the ABS Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL).
