The number of underemployed persons for time periods from August 2014 was revised in the spreadsheet tables 22 and 23 of the September 2015 issue of Labour Force, Australia. The data as at the September 2015 issue has been included in the October 2015 issue. The largest difference in estimates from the data published in August 2015 was approximately 9,000 persons at the national level.

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.
