LFS Revisions 2011 Census Data


In December, STC announced pending standard revisions to the LFS estimates based on 2011 census data, back to through to 2001 LFS products (Reference: it was mentioned in The Daily here <http://www.statcan>, and this week, STC released a revisions document here <>.) All the announcements state that rebased estimates are making their way into CANSIM this January and early February. Is there a timeline for release for rebased LFS microdata?


We have received the files, but there seems to be some issues with them. I have contacted Labour Force for clarification and once I receive that, I will then version them onto the EFT site. These will likely be ready by the end of the week.
