End of financial year reporting
Payroll jobs and wages data during June and July reflect a greater variation in business reporting, around the end of the financial year. This may result in a higher level of variation in payroll jobs and wages estimates and revisions over this period.
Sub-state data available
Updated estimates of payroll jobs by sub-state regions were included in this release on 6 July 2021.
Fortnightly releases continued for another month
Weekly Payroll Jobs and Wages in Australia will continue its fortnightly release schedule for another month, in response to the changing COVID-19 situation across the country. See Upcoming changes to this release for more information.
