LABOUR FORCE SURVEY STANDARD PRODUCTS AND DATA ITEM GUIDE

The Labour Force Survey Standard Products and Data Item Guide (cat. no. 6103.0) is a reference guide for users of standard Labour Force Survey products, including:


The guide is divided into two sections:
  • Section 1. Labour Force Survey standard product data

    The second section lists the Labour Force Survey standard products, and specifies the data items contained within each spreadsheet and data cube.


STANDARDS FOR LABOUR FORCE STATISTICS

The Standards for Labour Force Statistics (cat. no. 1288.0) presents statistical standards for the five core labour force variables:
  • Labour Force Status;
  • Status in Employment;
  • Hours Worked;
  • Full-time/part-time Status; and,
  • Duration of Job Search (formerly Duration of Unemployment).

These variables are commonly used in a range of social and labour statistical collections. This reference document describes the five core labour force variables and their associated conceptual issues and definitions. The standard for each variable includes the concept(s), definition(s), classification, coding structure, questionnaire modules and output categories used in ABS interviewer-based and self-enumerated collections.


LABOUR FORCE SURVEY STANDARD ERRORS

The Labour Force Survey Standard Errors, Data Cube, Feb 2014 (cat. no. 6298.0.55.001) allows the calculation of standard errors for estimates from the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS).

The spreadsheet in this publication can be used to calculate the standard errors for the Australian Statistical Geography Standard based regional estimates and 2011 Census based population revisions, introduced in the Jan 2014 release of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
