The Department of Jobs and Small Business carries out research to identify skill shortages in the Australian labour market. The research results provide information about skill shortages at the state, territory and national level. The department’s skill shortage research program covers more than 80 skilled occupations on an annual basis. The department is currently undertaking a review of its skill shortage research program and is asking interested industry parties to respond to a short online survey to find out what is important for the survey to cover.
The survey can be found here.
For more information on the survey and the meaning of its results, visit the department's Skill Shortages research page here.
