Data shows regional jobseeker numbers continue to decline

The Dept of Social Services data for Newstart and Youth Allownace recipients in July, released yesterday, has allowed us to update our Conus/CBC Staff Selection Jobseeker Trend series for the SA4 regions of Cairns and Townsville. What we see is a continued decline in Trend jobseeker numbers in both regions.

Across the State as a whole the Conus Trend estimates that jobseekers have fallen by 7.5% y/y, althougth this lags the 9.0% reduction seen nationwide. Greater Brisbane (down 7.4%) and the Rest of Queensland (down 7.5%) have seen very similar levels of reductions.

In our own region the Conus/CBC Staff Selection Trend shows Cairns trend jobseekers down 8.9% (to 8,139) in July while Townsville fell 6.0% (to 7,027).

The full Conus/CBC Staff Selection Jobseeker Trend data-set for Cairns and Townsville can be downloaded below. Please feel free to use this data but kindly acknowledge Conus/CBC Staff Selection when you do so. Further details on the Conus Jobseeker Trend for all the Queensland SA4 regions is available on request by contacting Pete Faulkner.
