Job vacancy statistics can be used to assess changes in the demand for labour. The ABS conducts the quarterly Job Vacancies Survey. In this survey, a job vacancy is defined as a job available for immediate filling on the survey reference date and for which recruitment action has been taken by the employer.
Table 6.69 shows the number of job vacancies in May 2004 was highest in the property and business services industry (27,700) followed by the retail trade (21,800) and manufacturing (16,100) industries.
