Labour Market Information

The National Skills Commission has responsibility for regularly reviewing the national skills needs of Australia and producing a skills priority list. The skills priority list provides a current labour market rating and a future demand rating for occupations nationally. The future demand rating is a proportional measure that expresses the prospects for an occupation relative to that occupation’s size.
