Queensland Government Population Projections, 2015 edition

The monthly regional labour force briefs prepared by QGSO utilise ABS labour force survey data. The regional monthly labour force estimates are derived from smaller sample sizes which can result in estimates with much higher volatility than at the national and state level. It is for this reason QGSO has utilised 12-month moving averages in reporting regional labour force data. This approach has been supported by the release of advice from the ABS which recommends analysis of regional labour force estimates be based on the use of 12-month moving averages. The full ‘Advice on Reporting Regional Labour Force Data’ article is available on the ABS website in the Labour Force, Australia, Detailed, July 2016 release.
