Welcome to the latest issue of Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0), a publication designed to help you stay informed about key labour market measures and the latest developments in the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) labour statistics program. Each issue contains a Labour Market Summary with both the latest key figures and a range of time series graphs.


This issue highlights some news from the ABS labour statistics program, including:

  • Release advice relating to Average Weekly Earnings; and
  • Highlights of recent ABS labour related statistical releases:
    • Replacement content of Work-Related Injuries, Australia, 2009–10 (cat. no. 6324.0);
    • Barriers and Incentives to Labour Force Participation, Australia, July 2010 to June 2011 (cat. no. 6239.0); and
    • Retirement and Retirement Intentions, Australia, July 2010 to June 2011 (cat. no. 6238.0).
See the Labour Statistics News page for more details on these developments.


On 28 September, the ABS re-launched the annual publication Labour Force, Australia: Labour Force Status and Other Characteristics of Families (cat. no. 6224.0.55.001). The publication has been expanded to include summary of findings and commentary on the latest estimates, a new summary spreadsheet alongside the regularly issued datacubes, and a new glossary and further explanations around the concepts and definitions used in compiling family estimates from the Labour Force Survey. Estimates for jobless families have been published for the first time, where 1 in 10 of the 2.9 million families with dependents had no employed family members in June 2011. For more information, refer to the publication.

The annual datacube "All Families, Family type by labour force status" has been updated with June 2011 data.
