LABOUR FORCE SURVEY REGIONS
Labour Force Survey (LFS) Statistical Region boundaries are revised every five years at each LFS sample redesign, following the availability of data from the Census of Population and Housing.
LFS regional estimates are produced based on the 2006 LFS Statistical Regions. A Feature Article on LFS regions will be published in the July 2009 issue of Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0). This article will include:
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. Because the entire population is not enumerated, the published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of this variability and appear on pages 30 and 31.
The 95% confidence intervals below provide another way of looking at the variability inherent in estimates from sample surveys. The interval bounded by the two limits is the 95% confidence interval, which represents a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Mary Piechowski on Canberra (02) 6252 6525.
