Employment indicators: Paid jobs week ended 21 June 2020

23 July 2020

Key facts

The weekly employment indicators use the timelier and more detailed payday filing that has been available from Inland Revenue since April 2019. Our experimental series includes three measures that trade-off between quality and timeliness.

Latest week

For the week ended 21 June 2020 the most accurate measure, number of paid jobs – 27 days, indicated the numbers of paid jobs (compared with the previous week) were:

  • 2,198,610 total paid jobs (down 3,670 or 0.17 percent)
  • 96,510 paid jobs in primary industries (up 170 or 0.18 percent)
  • 410,910 paid jobs in goods-producing industries (down 1,860 or 0.45 percent)
  • 1,639,560 in services industries (up 130 or 0.01 percent).

Due to the nature of the administrative data that these indicators draw from, the accuracy of the data improves the further out from the reference week it relates to. We advise strong caution in making decisions based on this data.
