Australian job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet dropped by 0.1 percent month-over-month in April 2019, after a 1.7 percent decline in the previous month. "After five successive steep falls, it is pleasing to see a virtually unchanged result in job ads for April," said ANZ's head of Australian economics, David Plank. On an annual basis, job advertisements decreased 5.6 percent. The ads series had been softer than government data on vacancies which hit record highs in the February quarter, suggesting employment growth would slow to a pace where unemployment would stop declining, he added. "This makes it unlikely that wage growth will accelerate by enough for the RBA to be confident of meeting its inflation target," he argued. "The labour market needs to get stronger, which is why we think the RBA will ease policy on Tuesday." Job Advertisements in Australia averaged 143764.75 from 1999 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 261343 in April of 2008 and a record low of 69799 in July of 1999.
