INDUSTRY CLASSIFICATION. From the August 2009 edition of this publication, industry statistics are presented using the 2006 Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC). Details about the adoption of ANZSIC 2006 are also provided in the Explanatory Notes of this publication in paragraphs 14-17.
SAMPLE REDESIGN AND SURVEY FRAME IMPROVEMENTS. A new sample and improvements to the survey were made in August 2009. The survey frame changes and sample redesign resulted in a shift in the level of the series from ANZSIC 1993 to ANZSIC 2006 estimates. For details about these changes and their impact on survey estimates, see the Explanatory Notes paragraphs 8-13, and paragraph 19.
NOTES ON ESTIMATES
COMPOSITIONAL EFFECTS. 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 28 and 29 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.
