Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods was originally released in 2001 in both electronic and paper versions (cat. no. 6102.0). The paper publication will not be re-released. However, the web version (cat. no. 6102.0.55.001) is being updated on an ongoing basis.

Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods provides a comprehensive discussion and description of the concepts and definitions underpinning Australian labour statistics and the data sources and methods used in the collection and compilation of these statistics. It explains what the statistics measure, how the various measures relate to each other and how they are produced. It also discusses the factors influencing their accuracy and reliability. On 15 December 2005, the entire publication was re-released. Several chapters were updated, four new chapters were added and existing chapters were re-numbered. All updates are listed below and future updates will be added as they occur.
