New Zealand Job Vacancies
In New Zealand, Job Vacancies measures changes in online job advertisements from four internet job boards – SEEK, Trade Me Jobs, Education Gazette and Kiwi Health Jobs. Job vacancies are an important indicator of labour demand and changes in the economy. The Jobs Online trend series is used as the primary indicator as it reduces the month-to-month volatility. We only publish basic highlights each month and a more detailed report every three months. The relationship between job advertisements and labour demand is complex, particularly when disaggregated at an industry, occupation and regional level.
