Occupations in demand by Region

The Nowcast of Employment by Region and Occupation or NERO provides estimates of employment in 355 occupations across 88 regions in Australia. Previously this type of data was only readily available every five years as part of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Census of Population and Housing. With NERO these insights can be produced on a monthly basis.

NERO has been developed using an emerging methodology called nowcasting using traditional, real-time and big data techniques – including machine learning – to estimate trends within a short timeframe after the data is available, more frequently and with increased detail.

NERO can be searched either by occupation or by region and the data can be downloaded in a variety of ways.
