A series of publications that will help you better understand the ever changing labour market of the 51 Employment Regions

JSA has developed a range of resources which provide insights about employment conditions and the labour market in areas across Australia.

They include:

  • Monthly labour market dashboards
  • Industry profiles
  • Recruitment trends and employers' needs profiles

The reports for Australia, states/territories and for the 51 Employment Regions are available below:


Labour Force estimates have been rebenchmarked to the 2021 Census-based ERP (estimated resident population), resulting in revisions to Labour Force estimates from July 2016 onwards. For many regions, the impact of the re-benchmarking is minor. For some regions, particularly in inner Sydney and Melbourne, the revisions to estimates are more significant. Users are encouraged to focus on the trends or directions in the data as these are largely unaffected by the re-benchmarking process.

Due to the cessation of jobactive and the commencement of Workforce Australia, caseload data is temporarily unavailable. Department of Social Services (DSS) job seeker income support payments have been included instead from the September 2022 dashboard release onwards. For more information about the DSS data included in the dashboards refer to the Labour Market Dashboard – sources and quality document on the previous page.
