Australia Job Advertisements  1999-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Job advertisements in Australia fell 0.7 percent month-on-month to 165,643 in February of 2017, compared to a downwardly revised 3.9 percent increase in January. On an annual basis, job ads grew by 6.9 percent, slower than a 7.1 percent gain in the prior month. " After a strong rise in January, job ads fell slightly in February. Some moderation in job ads is not unexpected given the strong January result and may reflect the tricky nature of seasonal adjustment at this time of the year. We expect that uncertainty about labor market momentum and the weakness in wage growth will be key topic of discussion at this week's RBA board meeting. Looking ahead, strength in business conditions, firms profitability and an increase in capacity utilisation all point to an improvement in labors market conditions in our view. Overall we expect the unemployment rate to slowly edge downward through 2017," said ANZ Head of Australian Economics, David Plank. Job Advertisements in Australia averaged 140593.95 from 1999 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 258099.14 in April of 2008 and a record low of 72752.60 in December of 2001.
