ANNUAL SEASONAL RE-ANALYSIS AND CHANGES TO SEASONAL FILTERS
The annual seasonal re-analysis of Labour Force series was conducted on estimates up to February 2017. As part of the 2017 re-analysis, the ABS has also reviewed the length of seasonal filters that are used in Labour Force series. The seasonally adjusted and trend estimates in this month's issue reflect minor adjustments made as a result of this annual review process (for more information see page 8).
Estimates of changes 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, movement 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 movements are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability. 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.
