DESE - Labour Market - Population by Age Group (SA4) December 2020

This dataset presents data on the population of a region by age group for the Statistical Area Level 4 (SA4) regions as of December 2020. The boundaries for this dataset follow the 2016 edition of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

The Australian Department of Education, Skills and Employment publishes a range of labour market data on its Labour Market Information Portal. The data provided includes unemployment rate, employment rate, participation rate, youth unemployment rate, unemployment duration, population by age group and employment by industry and occupation.

AURIN has spatially enabled the original data. Data Source: ABS Labour Force Survey, 12 month average, December 2020. The ABS advises that analysis of regional labour force estimates should typically be based on annual averages, which are important for understanding the state of the labour market and providing medium and long-term signals. The application of annual averages, however, is unlikely to accurately or quickly detect turning points in the regional data during periods of significant change (such as during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic). Original data at the ABS Statistical Area 4 (SA4) level can be found in Table 16. The region named "Western Australia - Outback (North and South)" in the original data has been omitted as it did not match a region within the SA4 2016 ASGS.
