The March quarter 2016 release of the Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product (cat. no. 5206.0) published Hours worked series does not incorporate the most up to date data available from the March 2016 release of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
This does not impact Gross Domestic Product (GDP) or industry based Gross Value Added (GVA) estimates. The impact is isolated to the Hours worked series and associated analytical series including; Hours worked market sector, GDP per hour worked, Gross Value added per hour worked market sector, and the unit labour cost series. The updated data from the Labour Force will be incorporated in the June quarter release of the Australian National Accounts. The ABS recommends utilising the Hours worked series published in the March 2016 release of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) until the update is incorporated in National Accounts.
