The Department of Education, Skills and Employment produces quarterly regional estimates of unemployment and the unemployment rate. These estimates are produced for two geographical classifications:
• For approximately 2,200 Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) Statistical Area Level 2s (SA2s), on a State/Territory and Metropolitan/Non-metropolitan basis. For the States and the Northern Territory, estimates for the Capital City and the rest of each State are also provided; and
• For each of Australia’s 540 Local Government Areas (LGAs).
Latest available SALM estimates can be found at the Small Area Labour Markets (SALM) website.
