IMPROVEMENTS TO TREND ESTIMATES
As previously advised, the ABS will implement some minor improvements to trend estimation for the Labour Force time series as part of the 2018 Annual Seasonal Reanalysis, in the March 2018 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0). For further information on this please see the article "Improvements to Trend Estimation".
UPDATE ON MONTHLY UNDEREMPLOYMENT ESTIMATES
The ABS previously advised that monthly trend and seasonally adjusted underemployment and underutilisation measures would be released in the March 2018 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0). However, the implementation of the monthly underutilisation measures has been delayed. For further information on this, please refer to “What’s New In the Labour Force”.
Estimates of changes shown on the front cover and used in the commentary have been calculated using unrounded estimates, and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movement 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. Published estimates and movements are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability. The interval bounded by two standard errors is the 95% confidence interval, which provides a way of looking at the variability inherent in estimates. There is a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
