NOTES


ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

This publication presents information about the experiences of unemployed people in seeking work, in terms of the steps they have taken to find work and the difficulties they have encountered in finding work. It also presents information about employed people who started their current job in the previous 12 months. For this group, data on the steps taken to attain work and current job details are provided. In addition, demographic information is provided for both of these groups.

The statistics in this publication were compiled from data collected in the Job Search Experience Survey, conducted throughout Australia in July 2008 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS).


NOTES ABOUT THE ESTIMATES

As a result of the sample reductions in the Labour Force Survey, (see Information Paper: Labour Force Survey Sample Design, Nov 2007 (Second edition) (cat. no. 6269.0)) the sample for the Job Search Experience Survey was approximately one-third smaller than the sample size in July 2007.

This has resulted in higher relative standard errors associated with the estimates. See the Technical Note for more details.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Data are now published separately for the population group, 'Employees (excluding owner managers of incorporated enterprises) who started their current job in the previous 12 months' (Population 3). Data items have also been amended to reflect this change. Please refer to the data item list for the affected items.

As a result, the content and structure of tables 9, 10, 11 and 13 have changed from last year.


ROUNDING

As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
