The statistics shown are the latest available at 12 March 2009. Data sources for the tables in this publication are listed in Appendix 1.


The tables containing Labour Force estimates have been revised, following the new population benchmarks based on the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. The Labour Force estimates have been revised for the periods June 2001 to January 2009.

The estimates by industry and occupation are now classified to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) 2006; and to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO).

The ANZSIC 2006 classification system replaces the existing classification ANZSIC 1993. For more information on the implementation of ANZSIC 2006 see Information Paper: Update on ANZSIC 2008 Implementation, 2006 (cat. no. 1295.0.55.001).

The ANZSCO classification system replaces the classification Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO) Second Edition. For more information on the implementation of ANZSCO see Information Paper: ANZSCO - Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations, 2005 (cat. no. 1221.0).

The estimates of public sector employees and cash wages and salaries presented in tables 2.11 and 2.12 are now based on the annual survey of Employment and Earnings.

Finally, wage price indexes for broad occupation groups are no longer produced and hence no longer included in table 5.1.
