Labour Market Maps and Analytics Dashboard

The Labour Market Maps and Analytics Dashboard is an interactive tool providing key labour market statistics and unemployment rate maps at the national, state and territory, and regional levels. Data are based on the monthly ABS Labour Force Survey and the National Skills Commission's  Small Area Labour Markets publication, and will be updated as new data becomes available.

The dashboard allows users to:

  • • view labour market indicators for areas of interest

  • • drill down on data for specific regions

  • • compare data for multiple regions at the same time

  • • export data as a spreadsheet

  • • export tables and maps as images and .pdf files.
