Skilled Occupations: ANZSCO Update later this year

Recommended Posts

Skilled Occupations: The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has commenced (March 2021 ) a review of the ANZSCO categorisation of occupations associated with:
  • agriculture, forestry, and fisheries
  • cyber security
  • naval ship building
The ABS is working with several Australian Government Agencies to progress a targeted update of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupation (ANZSCO).
Consultation has progressed well and there is now necessary support and resourcing for ABS to immediately commence a program of work. A phased approach is being taken in line with partners’ priority areas.
The targeted update of these priority areas will be undertaken during 2021 and inform development of a new approach to updating the ANZSCO. It will test the feasibility of achieving incremental changes and allow the classification to reflect rapid changes in labour markets.
Other priority areas, such as selected occupations associated with engineering and construction and health will be reviewed using the new approach during 2021-22. The new approach to updating the ANZSCO will allow the ABS to be more responsive to changes in the labour market and the needs of stakeholders. It will also enable production of data which is more relevant, whilst maintaining the ability for users to analyse trends over time.
