Note
We will not be publishing Employment indicators: Weekly as at 10 January 2022, which was originally scheduled for 13 January 2022. Our next release will be Employment indicators: Weekly as at 17 January 2022 to be published on 20 January 2022. This will allow enough time for data to be processed after the summer holidays and improve the quality of the indicator.
