The NSC has responsibility for regularly reviewing the national skills needs of Australia and producing a Skills Priority List (SPL).
The SPL provides a current labour market rating and a future demand rating for occupations nationally. Current labour market ratings are available for occupations at a state and territory level. The future demand rating (available nationally) is a proportional measure that expresses the prospects for an occupation relative to that occupation’s size.
The methodology used for the development of the SPL is available here.
