CHANGES THIS MONTH
As foreshadowed in the June 2010 and October 2009 issues of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), labour force estimates in this issue have been compiled using population benchmarks that incorporate revisions made to Net Overseas Migration estimates, published in the September 2008 and September 2009 issues of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0). The revised population benchmarks apply to the months of July 2006 to June 2010.
Other changes incorporated in this issue include annual seasonal reanalysis. For detailed information refer to page 3.
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 34 and 35. 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.
