As Leith noted earlier, via the ABS:
- Total job vacancies in May 2020 were 129,100, a decrease of 43.2% from February 2020.
- The number of job vacancies in the private sector was 111,200 in May 2020, a decrease of 45.0% from February 2020.
- The number of job vacancies in the public sector was 17,900 in May 2020, a decrease of 28.9% from February 2020.
Perspective from Callum Pickering:
The number of unemployed people per job vacancy rose to 7.2 people in the May quarter – from 3.1 people earlier in the year – and up to 20 people per vacancy when we include the underemployed #ausbiz @IndeedAU pic.twitter.com/VT7Po23UXH
