Improvements in the approach to trend estimation will be implemented for tables 22 and 23 as part of the May 2018 labour force release, on 14 June 2018

Seasonal adjustment processes have resulted in minor discrepancies between seasonally adjusted and trend data across tables containing monthly headline estimates and those containing quarterly underutilisation data. Data for total employed and unemployed persons is published in seasonally adjusted and trend terms within the spreadsheet tables containing quarterly underutilisation data. Estimates of seasonally adjusted and trend employed and unemployed persons in these tables are different to those published in tables containing headline monthly estimates for Australia, as one is based on data being seasonally adjusted and trended quarterly (consistent with underutilisation data), while other monthly headline estimates are based on data being seasonally adjusted and trended monthly.
