The Small Area Labour Markets (SALM) data has been compiled by Australian Government Department of Jobs and Small Business (DJSB). SALM data incorporates three primary datasets:
The estimates presented have been smoothed by Department of Jobs and Small Business using a four-quarter average to minimise the variability inherent in the estimates at the Statistical Local Area level, Statistical Area 2 level and Local Government Area level.
For states, territories and other large regions, unemployment rate data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Labour Force Survey is presented. The Labour Force Survey is based on a multi-stage area sample of private dwellings (currently approximately 26,000 houses, flats, etc.) and a list sample of non-private dwellings (hotels, motels, etc.), and covers approximately 0.32% of the civilian population of Australia aged 15 years and over.
