NOTES

NOTES ON ESTIMATES

COMPOSITIONAL EFFECTS

Movements in average weekly earnings can be affected by both changes in the level of earnings per employee and changes in the composition of the labour force. For example, changes in the proportions of full-time, part-time, casual and junior employees and variations in the distribution of occupations can affect movements in earnings series. Refer to paragraphs 18 and 19 of the Explanatory Notes.


SAMPLING ERROR

For information on sampling error see refer to Technical Note. Standard errors for the original estimates contained in this publication are in tables 18 to 20.
