LGA Unemployment Dashboard

This interactive dashboard presents unemployment rate estimates for Local Government Areas (LGAs) alongside corresponding state/territory and national figures. Estimates are available from 2010 through to 2023. The Regional Data Hub created this dashboard from two existing data sources. LGA estimates were sourced from the Small Area Labour Markets (SALM) dataset created by Jobs and Skills Australia. National and State/Territory estimates were sourced from ABS Labour Force datasets. Further details on data sources and calculations are available within the dashboard.
