Labour Account Australia, Experimental Estimates, July 2017
This publication presents experimental estimates for the Australian Labour Account for the period 2010–11 to 2015–16. The Australian Labour Account consists of eleven sets of tables focusing on four central quadrants of Jobs, Persons, Labour Volume and Labour Payments. Data in each table are available annually, and for the 19 industry divisions defined in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industry Classification (ANZSIC). The experimental estimates presented here have been compiled from existing published and unpublished data from various sources. Unbalanced tables show the difference arising from modelling, sampling and non sampling error in source data between filled job estimates derived from business sources and household sources as a "statistical discrepancy". Balanced tables are those for which a single harmonised estimate of the number of filled jobs has been derived.
