CHANGES THIS ISSUE

Revisions have been made to the 2010 data presented in the 2011 Survey of Education and Work (SEW) release.

Estimates for 2010 have been compiled using population benchmarks that incorporate revisions made to Net Overseas Migration estimates, published in the September 2008 and September 2009 issues of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0). The revisions also include a correction to the population benchmarks for the 2010 SEW to align them with the survey scope for the Northern Territory (NT) in relation to Indigenous communities in very remote areas.


IMPACT ON THE ESTIMATES

The impact on the Australian estimates for SEW 2010 is minimal with the change mainly affecting the Northern Territory. While the change results in a reduction in the size of the Northern Territory population estimate it has a minor impact only on the distribution of characteristics. The number of people aged 15-64 years or 65-74 years in the labour force or marginally attached to the labour force in 2010 increased by 0.9% for Australia and decreased by 8.5% for the NT. However, revisions to the civilian population benchmarks were not uniform across age groups. The largest absolute average change was to those aged 20 to 24 years.

These revised benchmarks were used in the calculation of 2011 estimates making recent data comparable with revised 2010 SEW data.
