Employment indicators: Paid jobs week ended 23 August 2020

24 September 2020

Key facts

This series counts the number of unique employer-employee relationships present in payday filing 6, 13, and 27 days after the end of the reference week. These counts are published as they are, and no work has been done to adjust for seasonality or data flow issues.

Latest week

For the week ended 23 August 2020 the most accurate measure, number of paid jobs – 27 days, indicated the numbers of paid jobs (compared with the previous week) were:

  • 2,189,220 total paid jobs (down 2,770 or 0.13 percent)
  • 99,920 paid jobs in primary industries (up 590 or 0.59 percent)
  • 408,420 paid jobs in goods-producing industries (up 780 or 0.19 percent)
  • 1,626,060 in services industries (down 2,420 or 0.15 percent).

Not all enterprises can be matched to an industry, so total paid jobs can differ from the sum of paid jobs of the three industries.
