CHANGES TO RELEASE DATES FOR MAY 2019 AND AUGUST 2019

The ABS is undertaking a major transformation, supported by a $257 million investment by the Australian Government to modernise its key statistical infrastructure. As part of this transformation, the ABS is progressively adopting new data acquisition platforms to collect information from businesses and households in Australia.

The Job Vacancy Survey will be one of the earlier surveys to use this new infrastructure, in 2019. This change has been carefully planned, tested and managed.

To enable the ABS to undertake additional quality assurance for the initial collections that are using the new infrastructure, some release dates will be changed. The release dates for Job Vacancies (cat. no. 6354.0) will be moved back by around a week for both the May 2019 and August 2019 releases.


ROUNDING

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.
