CHANGES THIS MONTH
As foreshadowed in recent editions of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) the re-instatement of the Labour Force Survey (LFS) sample commenced in September 2009 and will continue until December 2009. Detailed information about the sample reinstatement is available in Information Paper: Labour force Survey Sample Design, Nov 2007 (Third edition) (cat. no. 6269.0).
REVISION TO POPULATION BENCHMARKS
The ABS will revise Labour Force Survey population benchmarks from November 2007 in mid 2010. The revisions will impact on level estimates, such as the number of persons employed and unemployed, but will have negligible impact on movement estimates or estimates of rates, such as the unemployment rate. Further information is available in October 2009 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
LABOUR FORCE SURVEY STANDARD PRODUCTS AND DATA ITEM GUIDE (cat. no. 6103.0)
On 4 December 2009 the ABS released its Labour Force Survey Standard Products and Data Item Guide (cat. no. 6103.0). This product itemises and cross references all data contained within the Labour Force Survey standard products, with an explanation of each data item, including relevant formats, and product location.
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 33 and 34. 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.
