Recent Conferences, Workshops and Events

Staff from the ABS Labour Statistics Program have recently been involved in a number of conferences, workshops and events, including:

  • ABS Labour Statistics Advisory Group
  • Introduction to Labour Statistics training

ABS Labour Statistics Advisory Group. Canberra, 23 March 2011

On 23 March 2011, the ABS met with the Labour Statistics Advisory Group. Advisory Groups are important to the Bureau as a means of getting feedback from the expert and user community on current and planned developments in the ABS. By drawing on the advice, comments and concerns of the Advisory Group members, the ABS will improve the relevance and usefulness of the labour statistics program.

The meeting provided a forum for key users and other people with expertise in the field of labour statistics:
  • to provide advice to the ABS on its program of labour statistics,
  • to discuss developmental work being undertaken by the ABS on labour statistics, and
  • to bring major user concerns on labour statistics to the attention of the ABS.

The majority of topics discussed by the Advisory Group have previously been included in the Labour Statistics News and Current Activities sections of this publication, Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0) or in the Current Projects section of the (now discontinued) Labour Statistics News (cat. no. 6106.0)
