CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Telstra Corporation was effectively privatised on 20 November 2006. For the purposes of ABS statistics this change from public sector to private sector is effective from March quarter 2007. This change has impacted the Job Vacancies by sector series from February 2007 and movements between November 2006 and February 2007.


Although the change has impacted on both private and public sector series, the effect is significant only for the public sector series. As a result, a trend break has been applied to the public sector series between November 2006 and February 2007.


For more information see Information Paper: Future Treatment of Telstra in ABS Statistics, 2007 (cat. no. 8102.0), released 26 February 2007.
