MAY KEY POINTS
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES
From 22 March 2020, Australia saw the progressive introduction of major social distancing and other business-related restrictions to slow the spread of COVID-19. Most of these restrictions were still in effect on the Job Vacancies Survey reference date for the quarter (Friday 15 May 2020). May estimates show significant quarterly and annual change in the labour market.
SUSPENSION OF TREND ESTIMATES
Given the extent of change in the Job Vacancies time series, the ABS has temporarily suspended trend series and moved to using forward factors for seasonal adjustment for a range of series, including some job vacancies estimates. For more information, please refer
to; Spotlight: Job Vacancies Survey Methods During COVID-19.
SURVEY RESPONSES REMAIN HIGH IN MAY
Responses for the JVS May 2020 quarter remained high, with similar levels of responses to previous quarters. The ABS would like to thank the Australian business community for their continued support in responding to our surveys during such a difficult time, given how critically important this information is.
Estimates of percentage change shown in this release have been calculated using unrounded estimates, and may be different from, but are more accurate than, movements obtained from calculating percentage change using the rounded estimates presented in the Tables and the datacubes on the Downloads tab.
