NEW LABOUR FORCE SURVEY SAMPLE PHASE-IN
Since May 2013, the Labour Force Survey sample has been selected using information collected in the 2011 Census of Population and Housing. The effectiveness of the Labour Force sample is maintained by updating it with information from the most recent Census.
Commencing with July 2018, the ABS will utilise information from the 2016 Census for sample selection with the new sample phased in over eight months from July 2018. Detailed information on the new sample, including the use of the ABS Address Register, can be found in Information Paper: Labour Force Survey Sample Design, Jul 2018 (cat. no. 6269.0), which was released on 30 July 2018.
