WHAT'S NEW IN THE LABOUR FORCE
For information regarding a refinement to the aggregate monthly hours worked series, refer to 'What's new in the Labour Force' on pages 5-6.
The information paper Questionnaires used in the Labour Force Survey, July 2014 (cat. no. 6232.0) was released on 19 December 2014 and is available from the ABS website. The paper describes changes implemented in the questionnaire in July 2014 and a copy of the standard Labour Force questionnaire.
Estimates of change 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, movements 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 the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability (see Standard Errors section). 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.
