The Labour Force, Australia, Spreadsheets (cat. no. 6202.0.55.001) product set includes time series data corresponding to the tables contained in the Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) publication.

Since these products are based on the same data as the Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) publication, the 6202.0 Labour Force, Australia Main Features are relevant to both releases.

2008-09 SAMPLE REDUCTION

As foreshadowed in recent editions of this publication, the sample size of the Labour Force Survey for July 2008 was reduced by 24% when compared with the June 2008 sample. Detailed information about the sample reduction is provided in Information Paper: Labour Force Survey Sample Design, Nov 2007 (Second edition) (cat. no. 6269.0), which was released on 25 July 2008.

The reduced sample will still be representative, with selections made across all parts of Australia. However, there will be increased volatility in the estimates, particularly the original and seasonally adjusted estimates. Therefore, the ABS continues to encourage users to focus on trend estimates.
