REBENCHMARKING OF AGGREGATE HOURS WORKED SERIES
The annual rebenchmarking of the aggregate hours worked series was conducted in July. This has resulted in some minor historical revisions to the aggregate hours worked data. For further detail on the methodology see Information Paper: Expansion of Hours Worked Estimates from the Labour Force Survey, Australia, 2009 (ABS cat. no. 6290.0.55.001).
STANDARD ERROR MODEL
The model underlying standard errors associated with labour force data has been updated to reflect that the labour force sample is now based more than 50 per cent on the 2011 sample. Updated standard errors are published in the Standard Errors section of this issue, and in the Labour Force Standard Errors, Data Cube, May 2013 (ABS cat. no. 6298.0.55.001).
The estimates in this publication are based on a sample survey. Published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of sampling variability (see Standard Errors section). 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.
