SEPTEMBER KEY POINTS
TREND ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
On 28 September, the ABS re-launched the annual publication Labour Force, Australia: Labour Force Status and Other Characteristics of Families (cat. no. 6224.0.55.001). The publication has been expanded to include summary of findings and commentary on the latest estimates, a new summary spreadsheet alongside the regularly issued datacubes, and a new glossary and further explanations around the concepts and definitions used in compiling family estimates from the Labour Force Survey. Estimates for jobless families have been published for the first time, where 1 in 10 of the 2.9 million families with dependants had no employed family members in June 2011. For more information, refer to the publication (cat. no. 6224.0.55.001).
Estimates of monthly change 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 this variability (see pages 34 and 35). 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.
