REBENCHMARKING OF LABOUR FORCE SERIES
In order to better reflect recent trends in population growth, 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 advised in previous issues of this publication, 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 of this publication.
Estimates of monthly change shown 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. Published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability (see Standard Errors in the Explanatory Notes). 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.
