REVISED POPULATION BENCHMARKS
The latest available Estimated Resident Population data has been incorporated into revised population benchmarks which underpin the compilation of the Labour Force series. Labour Force series from July 2014 to April 2016 have been revised in original terms, with related revisions to seasonally adjusted and trend data. Revised series (including data up to the April 2016 reference month but prior to the inclusion of the May 2016 data), were released on 9 June 2016 in the April 2016 issue of Labour Force, Australia - Rebenchmarked Estimates (cat. no. 6202.0.55.003). The inclusion of the May 2016 data in this issue will result in further revisions to the seasonally adjusted and trend data as a result of the usual concurrent seasonal adjustment process.
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.
