In January 2011 there were a number of changes to the content of this publication, Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0), including the discontinuation of a number of tables and a new look for the publication. From July 2011 there will be an additional change with the discontinuation of the PDF version. All information from the PDF version will continue to be available as a HTML product.

Are the discontinued tables still accessible?:
From January 2011 issue, a number of tables were removed from the publication Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0). The earlier editions of this publication contained tables which drew together a range of labour statistics from a number of ABS sources and some international comparisons from the International Labour Organisation. These tables reproduced information that is freely available from the original sources. This publication no longer contains detailed tables that can be found in other publications.

Labour Statistics Data Sources contains more information on how to access ABS labour market statistics, and links to original sources for the discontinued tables from Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0).

Some information provided in earlier editions was unique to this publication and is still available. The datacubes:

  • Extended labour force underutilisation rate;
  • Volume measures of labour underutilisation; and
  • Employment type time series
will continue to be released annually.

In addition, four datacubes are published each quarter containing information on:
  • All families: family type by labour force status;
  • Employed persons: actual hours worked in all jobs;
  • Unemployed persons: reason for unemployment by industry and occupation of last job; and
  • Underemployed: industry and occupation.

Each of these datacubes is available free of charge from the ABS website <https://www.abs.gov.au> under the Downloads tab for this publication.
