20/10/2008 Low Level Correction to fix table title names text in historical Datacubes and a text error in a reference on the Main Features. The data in Labour Force, Australia: Labour Force Status and Other Characteristics of Families, September 2008(cat. no. 6224.0.55.001) is not affected.

In September 2008, an improved method for calculating families estimates was introduced. As a result, information from the following groups will now contribute to the family estimates published in datacubes FA1 to FA5:

  • households containing permanent members of the Australian defence forces
  • households containing usual residents of private dwellings who fail to meet LFS selection rules (for example, because they are away from their usual residence for more than six weeks) and
  • households which did not fully respond to the survey (as long as all demographic and family type variables are available).

Detailed information on the improved method is provided in Information Paper: Improvements to Family Estimates from the Labour Force Survey (cat. no. 6224.0.55.002).

Additionally, the frequency of the release has changed from annual release to monthly.

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