LABOUR STATISTICS NEWS


FORTHCOMING CHANGES TO AUSTRALIAN LABOUR MARKET STATISTICS

From January 2011 there will be a number of changes to the content of this publication, Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0). The publication will continue to be released on a quarterly basis and will include a summary of key labour market measures and a range of analytical articles.

Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0) will have an increased focus on providing updates on labour market statistical developments. In line with this focus, the biannual newsletter, Labour Statistics News (cat. no. 6106.0) will now be incorporated as a core part of Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0).

Please note that from January 2011, data tables 1.1 to 7.1 will no longer be included within this publication. Information will be provided to direct users of these tables to the same data in the standard products from each survey. Tables 1.7, 1.8, 2.7, 2.10, 3.3, 4.6, which currently are not contained in standard ABS products, will continue to be available as data cubes in Excel format on the ABS website under catalogue number 6105.0, until such time as they are incorporated in other ABS standard products. Spreadsheets (Table 1.1, 1.2, 2) will continue to be available within this product on the ABS website as datacubes from the downloads tabs.

If you would like further information about the upcoming changes to Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0) please contact Kirsty Leslie on (02) 6252 5436 or email kirsty.leslie@abs.gov.au.


COMMUNICATION REVIEW

Changes to be implemented in the January 2011 release of Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0) as described above arose from a recent review conducted into the way the ABS communicates information about labour statistics to different users. The communication review considered the purpose, structure and content of vehicles such as this publication, Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0), Labour Statistics News (cat. no. 6106.0), and Topics @ a Glance. In 2011, further changes will be implemented to better integrate Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0) with the Topics @ a Glance pages on the ABS website.


LABOUR THEME PAGE

The ABS Labour Topics @ a Glance page, available on the ABS website, provides a guide to the full range of ABS statistics on the labour market, as well as links to the latest data releases. To find Topics @ a Glance, go to <http://www.abs.gov.au> [Topics @ a Glance - People - Labour].


RELEASE OF LABOUR STATISTICS NEWS

Labour Statistics News (cat. no. 6106.0) was released on 26 August 2010. Labour Statistics News provides users with insight into the ABS labour market statistics program, and informs on recent and upcoming statistical developments. Each issue features updates on current projects, recent highlights, articles and analysis on labour market issues, information on contacts in the ABS labour market statistics area and other related information.

The August 2010 edition will be the final edition of Labour Statistics News (cat. no. 6106.0) in a stand alone format. From January 2011, the content of Labour Statistics News will be available as part of Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0).


LABOUR MOBILITY

In September 2010 the ABS released Labour Mobility, Australia, Feb 2010 (cat. no. 6209.0). This publication is released every second year and presents information about people aged 15 years and over who, within the 12 months to February 2010, either had a change of employer/business in their main job, or had some change in work with their current employer/business, for whom they had worked for one year or more. The statistics in this publication were compiled from the Labour Mobility Survey conducted thoughout Australia in February 2010 as a supplement to the monthly Labour Force Survey. This topic was the only supplementary survey release since the July 2010 edition of Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0).


REVISION TO POPULATION BENCHMARKS

Labour Force Survey estimates of persons employed, unemployed and not in the labour force are calculated to add up to estimates of the civilian population aged 15 years and over (known as population benchmarks). These population benchmarks are based on Census of Population and Housing data, adjusted for under-enumeration and updated for births, deaths, interstate migration, and net overseas migration.

From the July 2010 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), Labour Force Survey estimates have been compiled using population benchmarks that incorporate revisions made to Net Overseas Migration estimates introduced in the September 2008 and September 2009 issues of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0). The Labour Force Survey population benchmarks have been revised for the period July 2006 to June 2010.

For further information on the impact on labour force estimates, refer to the July Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), released on 12 August 2010.
