AUGUST KEY POINTS
TREND ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES (MONTHLY CHANGE)
LABOUR UNDERUTILISATION (QUARTERLY CHANGE)
The ABS conducted the 2011 Census on 9 August 2011. To assist in undertaking field work for the Census, the ABS employed a temporary field force during August of approximately 30,000 collectors and field staff. However, it should be noted that of these 30,000 temporary staff, a proportion of these would have already been employed in a job. Others may have changed the way in which they reported their employment status, from part-time to full-time.
Estimates of monthly change shown on the front cover have been calculated using unrounded estimates, and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movements obtained from the rounded estimates. The graphs on the front cover also depict unrounded estimates.
The estimates in this publication are based on a sample survey. Published estimates and the movements derived from them are subject to sampling variability. Standard errors give a measure of this variability (see pages 34 and 35). The interval bounded by two standard errors is the 95% confidence interval, which provides a way of looking at the variability inherent in estimates. There is a 95% chance that the true value of the estimate lies within that interval.
