APRIL KEY FIGURES
APRIL KEY POINTS
The completion of the move to the Address Register in February 2019 completes the transition of the sample to the 2016 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). The changes between the 2011 ASGS and 2016 ASGS at the SA4 level are minor, with one key exception. The 2016 ASGS supports the ‘WA outback’ being split into ‘WA outback – North’ and ‘WA outback – South’.
The ABS is still assessing whether Labour Force data can support estimates for these two regions. In the meantime, these regions will continue to be published as ‘WA Outback (North and South)’. The ABS has not revised Labour Force data for any of the changes at the SA4 level.
UPDATE ON THE RELEASE OF 6224.0.55.001
The ABS was due to release the Labour Force, Australia: Labour Force Status and Other Characteristics of Families (cat. no. 6224.0.55.001) on 27 September 2018, with annual data up to June 2018.
During the quality assurance of the 2018 data and the recent time series, the ABS identified that there was a greater level of variability in the weighted estimates for some of the less common family and household types (particularly multi-family households), and therefore opted to delay the release to 2019.
The ABS has identified an issue with some family coding, which is affecting a range of key family estimates - particularly changes between June 2015 and June 2017. The issue is also impacting, to a lesser extent, on some variables in the four "relationship in household" products in Labour Force, Australia, Detailed – Electronic Delivery (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) – including pivot tables FM1-FM4, as well as the first time series spreadsheet in that release, which contains estimates by social marital status.
The 2019 publication will contain data for both June 2018 and June 2019. Revised data for the 2015-2017 period, will be released with a complete time series with the release of June 2020 data. The ABS apologises for this delay. Should you have any question regarding these data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Estimates of changes 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. Graphs 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.
MOVEMENTS IN SEASONALLY ADJUSTED SERIES BETWEEN MARCH 2019 AND APRIL 2019
