Note: Predicated unemployment rates have been constructed by applying estimated employment growth and job losses from March 2020 to August 2021. Employment growth is forecast using previous historical labour market data patterns over negative economic shocks including the early 1980s, 1990s recessions and global financial crisis. Job losses have been estimated by applying job-specific loss shares to ANZSIC 3-digit industries based upon applying direct, indirect, lower and medium exposure classifications.
