Review of Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0)
The ABS is currently conducting a review of Australian Labour Market Statistics(cat. no. 6105.0). We are seeking your comments on the usefulness of the articles and tables in this publication. This paper briefly provides some background to the publication's development and describes the current content. An excel spreadsheet is attached to this document in which you may provide your comments.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) undertook a review of its dissemination practices for labour force statistics in late 2001. After extensive consultation with users the monthly Labour Force, Australia(cat. no. 6203.0) publication was discontinued and replaced with the quarterly publication Australian Labour Market Statistics(cat. no. 6105.0).
First released in April 2003, Australian Labour Market Statistics is the flagship release for ABS labour statistics. It is a compendium publication which draws together data from a range of sources, using ABS household and business surveys to provide an overall picture of the labour market.
The original purpose of the publication was to raise awareness of the ABS data available. Since then, the environment in which Australian Labour Market Statistics was designed has changed. With the introduction of free publications and data products via the ABS website, and more than four years on from its initial release, it is timely to review the content and future direction of Australian Labour Market Statistics.
Australian Labour Market Statistics includes a labour market overview; feature articles; recent releases; spotlights; labour market data and additional information. The following information is a brief description of the current components within the Australian Labour Market Statistics publication:
