Abstract

This document provides an index of data tables. The data tables contain historic data data going back as far as comparable data exists for each time series. The spreadsheets can be accessed from hyperlinks within the index. Spreadsheets showing estimates obtained from the Labour Force Survey (eg, employment, unemployment and economic inactivity) have been set up in printer-friendly format showing data for the last two years, with historic data appearing in hidden rows. These spreadsheets have macro buttons to unhide the rows to enable users to view the entire time series. If the macros do not work this is probably due to the security settings on your computer. You can either change the security settings or unhide the rows manually.
