ANNUAL SEASONAL RE-ANALYSIS AND CHANGES TO SEASONAL FILTERS
The annual seasonal re-analysis of the Labour Force series will be conducted on estimates up to March 2017. The seasonally adjusted and trend estimates in the March 2017 issue, which will be released on 13 April 2017, will reflect minor adjustments made as a result of this annual review process (for more information see Explanatory Note 33).
As part of the 2017 re-analysis, the ABS reviewed the length of seasonal filters that are used in Labour Force series. A short article on seasonal filter lengths can be found on page 12 of this issue, with further information to be included in the March 2017 issue.
SPOTLIGHT ON FULL-TIME AND PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT
A spotlight on understanding full-time and part-time employment is included with this issue, on page 9.
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.
