WHAT'S NEW IN THE LABOUR FORCE
This issue includes estimates rebenchmarked to the latest population estimates and projections. For details see page 8. What's new in the Labour Force on page 7 mentions two upcoming changes - the annual seasonal reanalysis to be incorporated in the March 2015 issue and the proposed timing for introducing new Labour Force outputs. This issue also includes an article on the take up rate of the online Labour Force questionnaire.
CHANGED TIMING OF MARCH 2015 RELEASES
To enable the results of the annual seasonal reanalysis to be fully validated before being incorporated into the Labour Force series, the March 2015 issue of this publication will be released on 16 April not 9 April as previously advised. As a consequence Labour Force, Australia, Detailed (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) will be released on 23 April.
Estimates of change shown on the front cover and used in the commentary 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 section). 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.
