Linked Employer-Employee Data: June 2008 quarter
Embargoed until 10:45am  –  20 August 2009
Highlights

This release focuses on labour market dynamics for New Zealand.

In the June 2008 year:

  • The number of filled jobs increased 2.2 percent, to reach 1,827,810. However, this annual growth rate slowed from 2.5 percent in the June 2007 year.
  • Average quarterly earnings increased 5.5 percent, to reach $11,480, the largest annual increase for a June year since the Linked Employer-Employee Data (LEED) series began in June 1999.
  • Growth in the number of filled jobs was stronger for males (up 2.4 percent) than for females (up 2.1 percent).
  • The professional, scientific, and technical services industry had the largest increase in filled jobs (5,780), high average quarterly earnings ($15,340), and contributed strongly to overall growth in filled jobs and quarterly earnings.
  • The slower 2.2 percent growth rate in filled jobs reflects a further decrease in the number of filled jobs in the manufacturing industry (1,530, a total of 8,110 since June 2005) and slowed growth in the construction industry (4.8 percent, down from 13.1 percent in June 2005).

For more information on LEED, see the Guide to Interpreting LEED Data. Additional data and breakdowns are available on Infoshare and Table Builder on the Statistics New Zealand website.
