ABS - Labour Force - Unemployed Persons by Duration of Job Search (SA4) 1998-2020

This dataset presents data on unemployed persons by duration of job search, available from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Labour Force statistics. This dataset is based on Statistical Area Level 4 (SA4) from the 2011 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) boundaries, and covers data for individual months between October 1998 and June 2020.

Labour Force statistics are compiled from the Labour Force Survey which is conducted each month throughout Australia as part of the ABS household survey program. The Labour Force Survey provides monthly information about the labour market activity of Australia's resident civilian population aged 15 years and over. The Labour Force Survey is designed to primarily provide estimates of employment and unemployment for the whole of Australia and, secondarily, for each state and territory.

This data is ABS data (catalogue number: 6291.0.55.001) used with permission from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Please Note:

  • AURIN has restructured the original data.

  • The original dataset includes data between July 1991 and October 1998, however these records are not aggregated by SA4, and therefore have been omitted from this dataset.
