ANNUAL BENCHMARKING OF MONTHLY HOURS WORKED
Each year the monthly hours worked in all jobs series is benchmarked to a new annual hours worked estimate. This year the annual benchmarking also incorporated some minor process improvements in the calculation of annual benchmarks across the entire time series, which have resulted in some minor revisions throughout the series.
No changes have been made to the methodology used to produce these estimates. For more details on the methodology, refer to the Information Paper: Expansion of Hours Worked Estimates from the Labour Force Survey, 2009 (cat. no. 6290.0.55.001).
Estimates of changes shown on the front cover and used in the commentary have been calculated using unrounded estimates, and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movement obtained from the rounded estimates. The graphs on the front cover also depict unrounded estimates.
The estimates in this publication are based on a sample survey. Published estimates and movements are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability. The interval bounded by two standard errors is the 95% confidence interval, which provides a way of looking at the variability inherent in estimates. There is a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
