Every month the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) delivers new insights into the Australian labour market from its monthly labour force survey.
While the main focus is usually on changes to the unemployment rate and levels of employment and unemployment, there are numerous other aspects which are of interest. More detailed information is made available in a variety of media, including Statistics Weekly - an ABS weekly publication which has all the highlights of the ABS' recent releases.
Statistics Weekly presents many summary articles on the nature and the dynamics of the labour market. They describe the results of the ongoing Monthly Labour Force Survey and associated supplementary surveys. This brochure presents a compilation of those articles published for the most part during 1991, which illustrate the wide range of information available from the ABS' labour statistics program.
The topics covered are many and varied. They range over the state of the labour market; the demographic characteristics of the working age population; the nature of employment; the job search experience of the unemployed; projections of the future labour force and so on.
In each case the articles give just a taste of the vast range of labour statistics available from the ABS.
