STATE OR TERRITORY OF SELECTION AND INTERVIEW

This data item is the state or territory that a dwelling was selected and the location where the interview for the labour force survey was conducted.

The State or territory of selection and interview remains constant in the longitudinal data as it relates to the selection of the Dwelling in the labour force sample. If a person in that selected dwelling moves to another state, the labour force survey does not follow them for the remaining months of selection, since there is a small chance that the person might move into another dwelling selected in the labour force survey and therefore be counted twice.

Visitors to selected dwellings may have a State or territory of usual residence [STATURCE] that is different to that State or territory of selection and interview. These people have their Weight for the current month [WEIGHT] adjusted to account for the differing chance of selection between the states and territories (see Information Paper: Labour Force Survey Sample Design, Nov 2007, cat. no. 6269.0).

Jervis Bay Territory, the Australian Antarctic Territory and the Territories of Christmas Island and Cocos (Keeling) Islands are excluded from the Labour Force Survey.
