Data relating to unemployed persons and their reason for unemployment is not available from August 2014. As noted in the Information Paper: Forthcoming Changes to Labour Force Statistics (cat. no. 6292.0), data cube UQ1 had been highlighted to be removed from the November 2014 issue. As response categories for this part of the Labour Force Survey questionnaire have changed and the householder is now asked to identify all reasons for unemployment instead of the previously asked main reason, this series is no longer able to be derived on a comparable basis and is therefore not available from the August 2014 issue. Data relating to reasons for unemployment will be included in data cubes UQ2(a) and UQ3(a) from the November 2014 issue.
