CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
As foreshadowed in the September 2010 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) in the article
Labour Force Survey Population Benchmarks, the ABS has changed the assumptions used to create the population benchmarks underpinning the Labour Force Survey estimates from this issue. Refer to the article in this publication titled Changes this month.
Estimates of monthly change 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 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.
