WHAT'S NEW IN THE LABOUR FORCE
Commencing with this publication, the July 2015 issue of the detailed monthly publication (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001), and the August 2015 issue of the detailed quarterly publication (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003), the ABS plans to publish Labour Force spreadsheets and data cubes in new formats. Details of the new format outputs are on page 6.
Annual benchmarking of monthly hours worked in all jobs has occurred with this issue. For details see page 7.
An update on progress with recommendations from the independent technical review into the Labour Force Survey is available on page 8. A brief article describing changes to the Status in Employment classification is also available on page 13.
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.
