JANUARY KEY POINTS
TREND ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS IN AGGREGATE MONTHLY HOURS WORKED
From the February 2010 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) the ABS will introduce a new trend and seasonally adjusted measure of aggregate monthly hours worked by full time and part time employment, by sex; together with an increase in the historical series to include estimates from July 1978. Refer to articles in this issue titled Expansion of aggregate monthly hours worked and Aggregate monthly hours worked - January 2010.
Estimates of monthly change shown on the front cover 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. Therefore, published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of this variability, see pages 35 and 36. The interval bounded by two standard errors is the 95% confidence interval, which provides a way of looking at the variability inherent in estimates. This represents a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
