Quarterly labour market report

This report combines the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s labour market monitoring programme with the latest developments in the labour market to paint a summary of labour market trends up to the latest quarter.

As well as the latest MBIE employment outlooks, the Quarterly Labour Market Report gives insights into employment trends by industry and region, summarises data on labour supply factors and participation, and presents information on indicators of labour supply and demand matching.

This quarterly research report is released each November, February, May, and August, drawing on the latest data for those periods.
