WHAT'S NEW IN THE LABOUR FORCE
The introduction of new format tables, spreadsheets and data cubes was scheduled for the June release of this and the detailed monthly issue. The introduction has been delayed pending finalisation of testing. The new outputs are now scheduled to be introduced with the July 2015 monthly issues and the August 2015 quarterly issue. Any change to this plan will be announced on Friday 31 July at the latest. Details of the new format outputs are on page 6.
The ABS will delay the release of the September 2015 Labour Force releases due to the two public holidays in the weeks preceding the current release date. The September 2015 issue of Labour Force, Australia will be released on 15 October.
An article presenting an assessment of the volatility in the Labour Force series will be released on 16 July with the June 2015 issue of the detailed monthly Labour Force data (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001).
Annual benchmarking of aggregate monthly hours worked will occur with the July 2015 issue. For details see page 7.
An update on recommendations 10 and 11 from the independent technical review into the Labour Force Survey is available on page 8.
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.
