Message From the Director




Welcome to the fourth issue of Labour Statistics News, and my first as Director of the Labour Market Statistics National Statistics Centre. Labour Statistics News is produced twice a year, to promote the ABS labour statistics program, to support the effective use of these data, and to provide an opportunity for you to give us feedback on developments related to the program so that we can better meet your statistical needs.

This issue includes information on the latest developments in ABS labour market statistics and updates on current work, including:

  • a review into the Labour Employer Surveys program;
  • review of the Job Search Experience survey;
  • review of communication from the Labour Market Statistics NSC; and
  • investigations into options for linked employer-employee data.

See the Recent developments, Current projects and Find Out More sections for more details on these, and other developments.

If you are looking to improve your understanding of the wide range of ABS labour statistics, a wealth of information can be found in the compendium publication Australian Labour Market Statistics (cat. no. 6105.0), in Labour Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 6102.0.55.001) and on the Labour Topics @ a Glance page of the ABS website. In addition, the Labour Market Statistics National Statistical Centre runs a one day training course, Introduction to Labour Statistics, in partnership with the ABS National Statistical Training Institute, which informs participants of the ABS labour collections and their applications.

If you have any questions about aspects of the labour statistics program, please contact one of our subject experts shown in the Find out more page of this newsletter, or you can contact us on (02) 6252 7206 or email <labour.statistics@abs.gov.au>.

I hope you find this newsletter interesting and informative.
