[SYDNEY] The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) on Wednesday published revised employment figures using the latest population estimates.

The ABS does this once a quarter to ensure the most up-to-date population numbers are used. Employment data up to and including July 2015 are affected as a result. August jobs figures will be released on Thursday.

The unemployment rate for July was unchanged at 6.3 per cent, but employment was revised to a rise of 37,900, versus 38,500 originally reported.
