SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
REBENCHMARKING OF LABOUR FORCE SERIES
The ABS will rebenchmark Labour Force estimates in the November 2012 issue, scheduled for release on Thursday 6 December 2012. This rebenchmarking will align the Labour Force population benchmarks with the latest available information on population growth (based on estimated resident population), but will maintain the 2006 Census base for the population benchmarks.
As previously advised, the Labour Force Survey population benchmarks and the estimates will be revised following the release of the final 2011 Census-based resident population estimates. Further details about the 2011 Census-based rebenchmarked Labour Force estimates will be announced in the November 2012 issue.
ELECTRONIC COLLECTION OF LABOUR FORCE DATA
The ABS has been testing the collection instrument and procedures for the collection of labour force data from householders using on-line electronic collection. A trial of this approach will be undertaken over the coming months. Further information about the collection of labour force data via electronic forms will be provided in future releases of this publication.
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 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. There is a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
