The Labour Market Information Portal (LMIP) brings together data from a range of official sources to help you understand your local labour market.
We use skills forecasting and analysis to provide data and intelligence about the labour market and current and future skills needs. This allows us to identify an Australian workforce with the right mix of skills for a changing economy, which will help us understand change and maximise opportunities.
Examples of our contribution to labour market research and analysis includes:
publishing the most detailed data on economy-wide job vacancies in Australia through the Internet Vacancy Index
- powering Jobs Hub to provide weekly information on on-demand jobs
Job Outlook provides information on employment characteristics and trends for more than 1,000 occupations. Data from official sources is combined with our research to provide detailed information on:
main tasks, required skills, and daily demands
usual hours and average earnings
workforce characteristics such as age, gender, educational attainment, location
assists job seekers to find local jobs that match their skills through Skills Match.
Understanding the state of the Australian labour market as the economy moves through COVID-19 recovery is critical.
We work using a holistic view of the labour market and the skills needed in the Australian economy—at an occupational, industry and regional level.
By consolidating and strengthening labour market analysis, we provide an independent and trusted source of information about what is occurring in the labour market, trends and skill needs.
We publish timely data and reports in response to the economic impacts of COVID-19, including regular updates on LMIP and feature analysis in:
- A snapshot in time: the Australian labour market and COVID-19 which explored the impact that COVID-19 had on Australia’s labour market
- The shape of Australia’s post COVID-19 workforce which provided an update on recent Australian labour market developments and published the analysis of four CGE-modelled COVID-19 recovery scenarios.
