WHAT'S NEW IN THE LABOUR FORCE
The introduction of new format tables, spreadsheets and data cubes in this and the related issues has been delayed as testing identified a small number of discrepancies that are being resolved. The new outputs are now scheduled to be introduced with the June 2015 issues. Any change to this plan will be announced on Monday 6 July at the latest. Details of this new format are on page 6.
As advised in the April issue, the quarterly rebenchmarking scheduled for the May 2015 issues was not undertaken. This is to minimise data changes ahead of the new format outputs being introduced. Quarterly rebenchmarking will recommence with the August issues.
An update on recommendation 7 from the independent technical review into the Labour Force Survey is available on page 7.
The estimates in this publication are based on a sample survey. Published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability (see Standard Errors section). 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.
