REVISIONS TO ESTIMATES
As foreshadowed in Information Paper: Revisions to Average Weekly Earnings Series (cat. no. 6302.0.55.001) released on 11 November 2008, average weekly earnings estimates from August 1996 to May 2008 have been revised. The data presented in this issue reflect those revisions. For further information see paragraphs 21-23 of the Explanatory Notes.
Movements in average weekly earnings can be affected by both changes in the level of earnings per employee and changes in the composition of the labour force. For example, changes in the proportions of full-time, part-time, casual and junior employees and variations in the distribution of occupations can affect movements in earnings series. Refer to paragraphs 19 and 20 of the Explanatory Notes.
For information on sampling error see the Technical Note at the end of this publication. Standard errors for the original estimates contained in this publication are in tables 18 to 20.
