The data cubes contain detailed information about labour force status and other characteristics of families using data collected in the Labour Force Survey.
In February 2009, Labour Force Survey data was revised to reflect population benchmarks based on 2006 Census of Population and Housing data, adjusted for under-enumeration and updated for births, deaths, interstate migration, and net overseas migration. Previously released families estimates were revised to incorporate this revision. For detailed description, refer to February 2009 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
From July 2010, Labour Force Survey estimates were compiled using population benchmarks that incorporated revisions made to Net Overseas Migration estimates in the September 2008 and September 2009 issues of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no 3101.0). Previously released families estimates have not been revised to incorporate this revision.
Since this product is based on the same data as the Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) product set, its Main Features is relevant.
