MAY KEY POINTS
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES
The previous issue of Job Vacancies, Australia (February 2010) was the first issue since May 2008 due to the suspension of the Job Vacancies Survey (JVS) in 2008/2009. The February 2010 issue presents job vacancy estimates for both November 2009 and February 2010.
Caution should be used when comparing estimates from November 2009 onwards with estimates for May 2008 and previous periods, due to the changes outlined below.
GAP IN SERIES
As a result of JVS being suspended, there is a gap in all series: original, seasonally adjusted and trend, for five quarters between August 2008 and August 2009 inclusive. The ABS cannot produce reliable estimates by collecting this missing data retrospectively, and has not been able to fill the gap using other data sources and modelling techniques.
STATISTICAL CHANGES IMPLEMENTED IN NOVEMBER 2009
A new sample is being used in the JVS from November 2009, based on ANZSIC 2006 and incorporating improvements to the survey frame. For details see Explanatory Notes paragraphs 10 to 12.
IMPLEMENTATION OF ANZSIC 2006
From November 2009, industry statistics presented are on the basis of Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 edition. Industry data up to May 2008 are only available on an ANZSIC 1993 basis. For further details, see Explanatory Notes paragraphs 20 to 22.
TIME SERIES ESTIMATES
Seasonal adjustments factors for November 2009 onwards are the same as existed prior to the suspension of JVS. Trend estimates are not available due to the suspension of the survey in 2008/2009. For further details, see Explanatory Notes paragraphs 23 to 28.
