TREND ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
Revisions have been made to data for Northern Territory for May 2010 to incorporate more up-to-date source data. No other State or Territory data are affected. However, minor revisions have been observed in Australia level Labour Force estimates for May 2010.
REVISIONS TO POPULATION BENCHMARKS
As foreshadowed in the October 2009 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), the ABS will be revising the population benchmarks underpinning the Labour Force Survey, due to revisions made to Net Overseas Migration (NOM) estimates published in September 2008 and September 2009 issues of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0).
The revisions will be applied in the July 2010 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), to be released on 12 August 2010.
The Labour Force Survey population benchmarks will be revised for the period July 2006 to June 2010. It is expected that the revisions will impact on level estimates, such as the number of persons employed and unemployed, but will have minimal impact on movement estimates or estimates of rates, such as the unemployment rate.
