CHANGES THIS MONTH
This issue introduces the quarterly seasonally adjusted measure of aggregate monthly hours worked by industry sector. A new time series spreadsheet will be released on the ABS web site as Table 20. Quarter measure of aggregate monthly hours worked by Industry Sector - Seasonally adjusted. The existing tables: Table 20. Labour underutilisation by Age and Sex - Trend, Seasonally adjusted and Original; and Table 21. Labour underutilisation by State and Sex - Trend, Seasonally adjusted and Original; have been renumbered to Table 21 and Table 22 respectively. See article Expansion of aggregate monthly hours worked in the January 2010 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
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 34 and 35. 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.
