Public consultation September 2015
As a result of a public consultation in September 2015, we decided to stop the LCI non-wage and all labour costs. We are investigating the development of a set of non-wage labour cost indicators based on administrative data sources. The June 2015 quarter data was the last survey-based release. The new indicators are likely to be available from late October 2016.
We will continue to publish the LCI salary and wage rates each quarter. Their relevance will be maintained by reviewing the weights following the 2018 Census.
