SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES
MONTHLY HOURS WORKED IN ALL JOBS
Each year, the monthly hours worked in all jobs series are benchmarked to an annual hours worked estimate. This annual process was conducted in July 2019 and resulted in minor revisions to all monthly hours worked in all jobs series. For more information regarding labour force rebenchmarking, please refer to the Feb 2015 article Labour Force, Australia - Rebenchmarking Labour Force Estimates (cat. no. 6202.0) which is published on the ABS website.
ASSESSING VOLATILITY IN THE LABOUR FORCE STATISTICS
This issue includes the latest periodic summary of the ABS' assessment of volatility in Labour Force statistics, which was last published in the June 2015 release of Labour Force, Australia, Detailed - Electronic Delivery (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001).
REVIEW OF SOME INCENTIVES FOR LABOUR FORCE PARTICIPATION AND RETIREMENT AND RETIREMENT INTENTIONS CONTENT
The ABS is currently undertaking a review of some of the survey content collected as part of the Multi-Purpose Household Survey. If you are currently using the incentives component within Barriers and Incentives to Labour Force Participation (cat. no. 6239.0), or the current income component within Retirement and Retirement Intentions (cat. no. 6238.0), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Estimates of changes in the commentary have been calculated using un-rounded estimates, and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movement obtained from the rounded estimates. Graphs also depict un-rounded 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.
MOVEMENTS IN SEASONALLY ADJUSTED SERIES BETWEEN JUNE 2019 AND JULY 2019
