Frequency of Collection
The Job Vacancies and Overtime series was introduced in November 1983. It replaced the previous Job Vacancy and Overtime series based on information from a sample of employers registered to pay payroll tax and from government organisations. Estimates from the current series are not strictly comparable with those prior to November 1983.
From August 1999, the overtime component of the Job Vacancies and Overtime was dropped leaving the number of job vacancies and job vacancy rates as the only information collected from this survey. The overtime data are now collected as part of the Employee Earnings and Hours Survey and published in Employee Earnings and Hours, Australia (cat. no. 6306.0).
From November 2003, the Job Vacancies Survey no longer collects information on the number of employees. A job vacancy rate series, based on estimates of the number of employees from the Labour Force Survey, is available on request.
