Revisions to labour force estimates - available today
Revised employment and unemployment statistics were released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The revisions follow the annual reanalysis of seasonal factors undertaken by the ABS and affect seasonally adjusted and trend data.
The reanalysis of seasonal factors incorporates the most recent 12 months of labour force data, to produce revised seasonal factors. Consequently, revisions may occur for estimates for 1996 and for prior years.
Revised monthly seasonally adjusted estimates of employment and the unemployment rate for the period January 1996 to January 1997 are:
The ABS will publish revised data in Labour Force, Australia, Preliminary (cat. no. 6202.0) to be released on 13 March 1997, and in Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6203.0) towards the end of March 1997.
These data are now available on the ABS's electronic data service PC-Ausstats and as a standard product available on request from the Labour Force Section.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
