(a) Persons aged 15 years and over.
(b) Averages calculated on monthly original estimates.
(c) Differences between the aggregation of regions and state-level totals may vary due to the annual average methodology used.
(d) A new Labour Force Survey questionnaire was introduced in April 2001. As a result, a small number of definitions have been modified resulting in revisions to core labour force series from 1986 to 2001. This process did not include revisions to labour force region data and differences may occur between the aggregation of regions and state totals.
(e) Labour Force Survey estimates at the regional level have been revised based on population benchmarks for Labour Force Statistical Regions for the period January 1999 to January 2004. As a result, the regional estimates for years 1999-2000 to 2002-03 will differ slightly from those published in previous releases.
