The data cubes contain detailed information about labour force status and other characteristics of families using data collected in the Labour Force Survey.
Detailed families data was released on a monthly basis from September 2008 until January 2009, for the reference periods August 2004 to December 2008. The ABS is currently investigating the frequency to which this detailed families data will be released in the future.
In February 2009, Labour Force Survey data was revised to reflect population benchmarks based on 2006 Census of Population and Housing data, adjusted for under-enumeration and updated for births, deaths, interstate migration, and net overseas migration. For detailed description, refer to February 2009 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0).
Since these products are based on the same data as the Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202.0) product set, its Main Features are relevant to both releases.
