WHAT'S NEW IN THE LABOUR FORCE
From the August 2015 issue the ABS commenced quarterly updating (rebenchmarking) Labour Force population benchmarks with the latest available Estimated Resident Population series. To enable users to assess the impact of the rebenchmarking, the ABS publishes rebenchmarked Labour Force estimates one week prior to each quarterly release of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), within Labour Force, Australia - Rebenchmarked Estimates (cat. no. 6202.0.55.003). This additional quarterly release includes all spreadsheets and one data cube that are released as part of Labour Force, Australia. The May 2016 issue of the rebenchmarked estimates will be released on 9 June 2016.
Estimates of changes shown on the front cover and used 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. The graphs on the front cover 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.
