  • In WA, there were 30,300 job vacancies in November 2010, 6.8% higher than in August 2010. Nationally, the number of job vacancies increased by the same proportion, reaching almost 194,000.

The above statistics are taken from Job Vacancies, Australia, November 2010 (cat. no. 6354.0). The Job Vacancies Survey measures the number of vacancies as at the third Friday of the middle month of each calendar quarter. As a result of the suspension of this survey between August 2008 and August 2009 inclusive, estimates are not available for these five quarters.
