CHANGES THIS MONTH
This issue includes trend and seasonally adjusted measures of aggregate monthly hours worked by full time and part time employment, by males and females; together with an expansion in the historical series to include estimates from July 1978. See article Expansion of aggregate monthly hours worked in the January 2010 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS IN AGGREGATE MONTHLY HOURS WORKED
From the March 2010 issue, the ABS will introduce a seasonally adjusted quarterly measure of aggregate monthly hours worked based on four industry sectors; specifically, market (agriculture and rest of market) and non-market (education and rest of non-market). See article Expansion of aggregate monthly hours worked in the January 2010 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
Estimates of monthly change shown on the front cover have been calculated using unrounded estimates, and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movements obtained from the rounded estimates. The graphs on the front cover also depict unrounded estimates.
The estimates in this publication are based on a sample survey. Therefore, published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of this variability, see pages 33 and 34. The interval bounded by two standard errors is the 95% confidence interval, which provides a way of looking at the variability inherent in estimates. This represents a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
