Healthcare the big jobs winner in Cairns

The ABS regional quarterly data for industry jobs shows Healthcare as the big winner in the Cairns region over the past decade. Since Nov 2006 the sector has added 4,900 jobs (3,000 of which have been full time) and now is the largest employing sector in the region with a total of 13,400 jobs.

The other big winner has been Education which has picked up 3,700 (mostly part time) jobs over the decade and now sits in third place just behind Retail Trade (which has lost 1,500 jobs in the period).

All numbers relate to an average calculated from the last 4 quarters of data so cannot be compared directly to the ABS original monthly, and Conus Trend, jobs data.
