ABS LABOUR STATISTICS ADVISORY GROUP, CANBERRA, 9 NOVEMBER 2011
On 9 November 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 discussed likely directions arising out of the recent review of the labour household survey program, as well as an update on a range of developments in the ABS labour statistics program.

The seminar held on 9 November, featured Professor Bob Gregory from the Research School of Economics at ANU, Mr Richard Denniss from the Australia Institute and the Australian Statistician, Mr Brian Pink.
