This product, Labour Force Historical Timeseries, Australia (cat. no. 6204.0.55.001), contains superseded spreadsheets and data cubes that were previously published in Labour Force, Australia, Detailed - Electronic Delivery (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) and Labour Force, Australia, Detailed, Quarterly (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003).
This additional information release relates to the inclusion of two additional spreadsheets (14A_Sep97 and 14B_Apr86) and one additional data cube (UM3_Sep97) to the historical product. These items contain historical Duration of unemployment estimates that were created based on an analysis of data collected as what is now known as Duration of unemployment since last full-time job. These estimates were previously published in Labour Force, Australia, Detailed - Electronic Delivery (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) but they are no longer coherent with the newly revised unemployment estimates provided in other labour force products. Refer to the Changes this month: Historical Revisions article published in the February 2011 release of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) for further information.
Previous issues of this product contain superseded spreadsheets and data cubes relating to the the introduction of new Industry, Occupation and Regional classifications. Labour Force Survey (LFS) time series data for the period 1966 to 1984 are also available. None of these historical products have been updated with recent revisions to benchmarks or industry classification.
The products are based on data published in Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0), therefore, refer to that product's Explanatory Notes for detailed information.
