The reader is advised that Labour Market data provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics has undergone a major overhaul leading up to the preparation of the February Quarter figures. With adjustments for a new Census, new boundaries, a new sample and a new collection system, the figures will need caution in their interpretation for the first six months of the year.
We first examined national figures for employment, unemployment rates, participation rates and those persons not entering the Labour Market. We also reviewed ABS breakdowns of this data for age and gender. We then reviewed changes to the industries of employed persons in terms of their occupation and gender.

|Disclaimer: The Labour Market reports and associated maps have been prepared as an educational and public relations exercise and have not been designed as an advisory tool for business and we take no responsibility for those who use either of them for these purposes. The sampling errors for smaller Labour Force regions are often large and the raw figures used cannot be easily adjusted for seasonal trends. The statistical significance of the profiles also need to be considered. We repeat, caution is urged in any interpretation of these statistics. We acknowledge and thank the Australian Bureau of Statistics for the provision of original data, Dr Otto Helwig of MDS for the HES micro simulation modelling and Phil Henry of Business Geographics for the mapping.|
