The figure shows the changes in the number of persons employed in Australia by gender and type of employment (full- or part-time) since January 2019.
While until October most of the recovery in employment data was due to increase in the number of part-time jobs, data from November and December shows a substantial increase in the full-time trends, potentially partly due to restrictions being eased in Victoria and further optimisim in sustainable economic recovery across the country.
This plot looks at the YoY change in the number of persons employed in each category. The number that you see at each point of time in 2020 is compared to a similar point in 2019, for example June 2020, shows the change for that cohorts compared to June 2019.
