I-Note: Standard Errors (released 22 August 2008)
The Standard Error (SE) models have been revised to reflect the reduced Labour Force Survey sample implemented in July 2008. Consequently, the standard errors relating to the level and rate estimates for Australia in November 2007 to June 2008 have been revised. Data released in Labour Force, Australia, July 2008 (cat. no. 6202.0) and associated products have not changed. Refer to the new SE models when analysing the results.
For the latest issue of the SE spreadsheet incorporating these revised SE models, refer to Labour Force Survey Standard Errors, Data Cube, July 2008 (Reissue) (cat. no. 6298.0.55.001) released 22 August 2008.
Detailed information about the sample reduction is provided in Information Paper: Labour Force Survey Sample Design, Nov 2007 (Second edition) (cat. no. 6269.0).
I-Note: Sample Redesign (released 19 June 2008)
Due to changes in sample redesign, it has been necessary to collapse some regional groups in New South Wales. This has resulted in changes to weights applied at the New South Wales state and regional levels. Estimates for New South Wales state and regional levels have been revised to reflect this change, affecting estimates from November 2007 to April 2008.
