SAMPLING ERROR

For information on sampling error, including standard errors for original estimates contained in this publication, see the Technical Note.



CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

The ABS has implemented an improved method of producing seasonally adjusted estimates for the Job Vacancies Survey (JVS), through the application of Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) modelling techniques. JVS now uses concurrent seasonal adjustment with ARIMA modelling, which reduces the level of revisions to seasonally adjusted and trend estimates when subsequent data become available. See paragraph 25 of the Explanatory Notes for more information on the ARIMA modelling technique.
