INFOGRAPHIC: Recent data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) revealed that the number of job vacancies in Australia increased in the February 2019 quarter.

 Compared with the November 2018 quarter, which recorded 245,700 job vacancies, the quarter ending February 2019 recorded a 1.1 per cent increase in vacancies at 245,900.

This is also a 9.2 per cent increase when compared with February 2018 record, which registered a job vacancy record of 223,700 across Australian states and territories.

“Growth in the quarterly trend measure of job vacancies eased further to 1.1 per cent, which was well below the 5.2 per cent seen a year ago,” ABS chief economist Bruce Hockman confirmed.

Job vacancies in the private sector recorded 2,235,000 in the same quarter. This is an increase of 1.1 per cent compared with the November 2018 quarter and an increase of 9.2 per cent from the previous year.
