Internet job ads for F&NQ

The Department of Employment internet job ads series has been updated for January. The DoE provide this info as a 3 month average and also indexed to 100 from 2010 to enable better comparisons between regions which is what I have used here:

Unfortunately the regions in this series don't correlate with the ABS labour force survey. The 'Far North Queensland' region here also annexes Townsville into FNQ. Pete Faulkner has recently commented on some divergence in the ABS labour stats at Conus: Trend Unemployment rates improve but Cairns and Townsville is a “Tale of Two Cities”

The data does also provide a breakdown into employment classifications indexed here for F&NQ:

Data may require further analysis and manipulation for useful commentary.
