REBENCHMARKING OF LABOUR FORCE SERIES
Labour Force estimates from January 2011 to March 2013 will be revised in the April 2013 issue to align the Labour Force population benchmarks with the latest available information on population growth. As previously advised, these estimates will use the 2006 census base for the population benchmarks until the 2011 census base is introduced in the January 2014 issue.
Estimates of monthly changes shown on the front cover 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 pages 32 and 33). 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.
