Labour Force, Australia, Detailed

A monthly range of excel spreadsheets and excel pivot tables covering all the major items of the Labour Force Survey in time series format

Reference period
December 2019
Released
30/01/2020

Main features

Data from the monthly Labour Force Survey are released in two stages. The Labour Force, Australia, Detailed - Electronic Delivery (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) and Labour Force, Australia, Detailed, Quarterly (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003) are part of the second release, and include detailed data not contained in the Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) product set, which is released one week earlier.

The Labour Force, Australia, Detailed - Electronic Delivery (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) is released monthly. Labour Force, Australia, Detailed, Quarterly (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003) includes data only collected in February, May, August and November (including industry and occupation).

Since these products are based on the same data as the Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) publication, the Labour Force, Australia - Explanatory Notes (cat. no. 6202.0) are relevant to both releases.

For advice on reporting data from our regional labour force products (Pivot tables RM1, RM3 and Tables 16, 16B, 16C), please refer to: Advice on reporting regional labour force data.

The ABS has identified an issue with some family coding, which is affecting a range of key family estimates - particularly changes between June 2015 and June 2018. The issue is impacting on some variables in the four "relationship in household" products in Labour Force, Australia, Detailed – Electronic Delivery (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) – including pivot tables FM1-FM4, as well as the first time series spreadsheet, which contains estimates by social marital status.

Townsville Flood 2019 (Spreadsheets Table 02, Table 16, Table 16b, Table 16c)

Flooding in Townsville in February 2019 resulted in a major disruption to the operation of the Labour Force Survey. As a result, there was a very low sample of responding households in the region in February.

Given the severity of these disruptions, and to ensure that this loss of sample did not affect data for Australia and Queensland, the ABS imputed sample for Townsville for February 2019. The imputation drew upon previous information that had recently been collected from people in Townsville. The imputation may have resulted in a slight overestimation of hours worked in Queensland in February 2019, given hours worked in Townsville may have been lower during the floods.

Following the collection of March 2019 data from Townsville, the February data was re-assessed and has not been revised. The ABS will review the data again in February 2020.

Users of the matched sample analysis should also exercise some caution when looking at Queensland data between January, February and March, given the effect of the imputation for Townsville.

During 2018, the ABS estimated that employed people in Townsville accounted for around 1 per cent of all employed people in Australia, around 4 per cent of employed people in Queensland, and around 9 per cent of employed people in the regions in Queensland outside of Brisbane.

Queensland Flood 2011

Due to the flooding in Queensland in January 2011, the Relative Standard Errors (RSE) for January 2011 vary across labour market regions and are higher than normal in some. The RSEs for the Darling Downs-South West and Ipswich City labour market regions are approximately 50% higher, while the RSEs for the Brisbane City Inner Ring labour market region increased by approximately 25%. The Brisbane City Outer Ring, West Moreton and Mackay-Fitzroy-Central West labour market regions have RSEs approximately 10% higher. All other labour market regions have minimal differences. From February 2011, the data returns to normal. Refer to the article Impact of the floods on the Labour Force Survey in the January 2011 issue of Labour Force, Australia, (cat. no. 6202.0) for more information.

Note, the labour market regions above are referenced under the old Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC). The data in this data cube is published under the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

Labour force sample post 2011 Census

The labour force sample selected after the 2011 Census was phased-in over four months from May to August 2013. See the article titled "New Labour Force Sample Design" in the May 2013 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) for more information. During phase in of the new sample, standard errors associated with key labour force data are expected to increase by approximately 10% at a national level, however increased standard errors and variability in the estimates may be more evident in detailed regional data during this time.

Insights from the original data

Sample composition

The Labour Force Survey sample can be thought of as comprising eight sub-samples (or rotation groups), with each sub-sample remaining in the survey for eight months, and one rotation group "rotating out" each month and being replaced by a new group "rotating in". This sample rotation is important in ensuring that seven-eighths of the sample are common from one month to the next, to ensure that changes in the estimates reflect real changes in the labour market, rather than the sample. In addition, the replacement sample is generally selected from the same geographic areas as the outgoing one, as part of a representative sampling approach.

When considering movements in the original estimates, it is possible to decompose the sample into three components:

  • the matched common sample (survey respondents who responded in both November and December);
  • the unmatched common sample (survey respondents who responded in December but who did not respond in November, or vice versa); and
  • the incoming rotation group (survey respondents who replaced respondents who rotated out in November).
     

The detailed decomposition of each of these movements is included in the data cube 'Insights From the Original Data'.

In considering the three components of the sample, it is important to remember that the matched common sample describes the change observed for the same respondents in November and December, while the other two components reflect differences between the aggregate labour force status of different groups of people.

While the rotation groups are designed to be representative of the population, the outgoing and incoming rotation groups will almost always have somewhat different characteristics, as a result of the groups representing a sample of different households and people. The design of the survey, including the weighting and estimation processes, ensures that these differences are generally relatively minor and seeks to ensure that differences in characteristics of rotation groups do not affect the representativeness of the survey and its estimates. Monthly estimates are always designed to be representative of their respective months, regardless of the relative contribution of the three components of the sample.

Incoming rotation group

In original terms, the incoming rotation group in December 2019 had a higher employment to population ratio than the group it replaced (63.9% in December 2019, compared to 62.3% in November 2019), and was higher than the sample as a whole (63.2%). The incoming rotation group had a higher full-time employment to population ratio than the group it replaced (43.3% in December 2019, compared to 42.7% in November 2019), and was lower than the sample as a whole (43.4%).

The incoming rotation group had a higher unemployment rate than the group it replaced (5.3% in December 2019, compared to 4.9% in November 2019), and was higher than the sample as a whole (4.9%). The incoming rotation group had a higher participation rate than the group it replaced (67.4% in December 2019, compared to 65.5% in November 2019), and was higher than the sample as a whole (66.4%).

Outgoing rotation group

In looking ahead to the January 2020 estimates, in original terms, the outgoing rotation group in December 2019, that will be replaced by a new incoming rotation group in January 2020, had a higher employment to population ratio in December 2019 (64.2%) compared to the sample as a whole (63.2%). The outgoing rotation group in December 2019 had a higher full-time employment to population ratio (44.5%) compared to the sample as a whole (43.4%).

The outgoing rotation group in December 2019 had a lower unemployment rate (4.0%) compared to the sample as a whole (4.9%). The outgoing rotation group in December 2019 had a higher participation rate (66.9%) compared to the sample as a whole (66.4%).

The importance of trend data

As the gross flows and rotation group data are presented in original terms they are not directly comparable to the seasonally adjusted and trend data discussed elsewhere in the commentary, and are included to provide additional information for the original data. Since the original data are unadjusted, they have a considerable level of inherent sampling variability, which is specifically adjusted for in the trend series. The trend data provides the best measure of the underlying behaviour of the labour market and is the focus of the commentary in this publication.

Rotation group analysis for states and territories

In addition to analysis across the entire sample, the ABS also undertakes similar analysis for the responding sample in each state and territory each month, and highlights where there is a notable change for users to be aware of. For example, in October 2019, the incoming rotation group in Victoria was more employed and less likely to be not in the labour force than the group it replaced, and was generally more employed and less not in the labour force than the matched sample. As with any notable month-to-month movement of this nature in state and territory estimates, the ABS recommends exercising a degree of caution in interpreting short-term changes.

As for its reporting for the entire sample, where the ABS has not highlighted a notable incoming rotation group effect, any larger changes should therefore be considered to reflect a broader change across the sample.
