Key changes made to Labour Mobility Survey include:
Prior to 2006, changes in locality were included as a job change. From 2006, data items that referred to locality, were no longer collected.
From 2008, occupation data are classified according to the ANZSCO–Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations First Edition, 2006 (cat. no. 1220.0). The new classification replaces ASCO–Australian Standard Classification of Occupations Second Edition, 1997 (cat. no. 1220.0). Data classified according to ASCO can be obtained on request.
From 2008, industry data are classified according to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 (cat. no. 1292.0). The new classification replaces Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 1993 (cat. no. 1292.0). Data classified according to ANZSIC 1993 can be obtained on request.
The introduction of ANZSCO First Edition and ANZSIC 2006 from 2008 have made data relating to change in occupation and industry not comparable with previous years. Consequently, presentation of time series data for 'Whether changed occupation (last to current employer/business)' and 'Whether changed industry (last to current employer/business)' changed in the 2008 publication.
In 2008, amendments were made to 'Whether changed occupation' and 'Whether changed industry' data items to output changes in Major and Minor occupation groups and changes in industry Division or Subdivision.
As a result of these changes, users need to exercise care when comparing the estimates between releases. For further information on these revisions please see the Explanatory Notes of the relevant Labour Mobility, Australia (cat. no. 6209.0) publication.
