    The monthly Labour Market Dashboards combine a range of data sources from Jobs and Skills Australia, Department of Social Services (DSS) and Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) at the national, state and territory level, and for all 51 Employment Regions. Dashboards include:

    • key labour market indicators
    • 5-year employment time series
    • 5-year unemployment rate (%) time series
    • largest employing industries in a region
    • Department of Social Services job seeker income support payments
    • Local Government Area unemployment rates
    • number of internet job advertisements
    • occupations in demand in a region.

    Note: the ABS modelled regional estimates will be incorporated into the dashboards (in lieu of the traditional survey estimates) from the June 2024 release onwards. A PowerBI application will also be available from the next release onwards, incorporating data from the pdf dashboards.

    Latest release date: May 2024

    Next release date: June 2024

    Additional labour market dashboards

    From the July 2023 release onwards alternative dashboards for select Employment Regions (Broome, Esperance, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, North Coast and North West Country SA) are provided due to poor Statistical Area Level 4 (SA4) proxies for these regions. Given the relevant SA4s can only provide poor proxies for these Employment Regions, Jobs and Skills Australia Small Area Labour Markets (SALM) Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) data have been used for select labour market indicators (labour force, unemployment and the unemployment rate) and Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) 2021 Census data for the largest employing industries, in lieu of ABS Labour Force data. For Employment Regions with multiple SA2s (Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, North Coast and North West Country SA), aggregated Small Area Labour Markets labour force and unemployment estimates have been used to derive unemployment rates for these Employment Regions.

    While Small Area Labour Markets and ABS Census data are not as current as the monthly ABS labour force data, they provide more accurate labour market indicators for these specific regions. Dashboards will be updated on a monthly basis noting the frequency of data updates vary depending on individual data releases:
