Australia's job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet declined by 2.8 percent month-over-month in August 2019, the first monthly drop in three months. The latest data suggests the labor market is softening and provides further evidence that the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) will need to cut the cash rate again, the ANZ's head of Australian economics David Plank said. On an annual basis, job advertisements fell by 11.4 percent in August. Annual growth has been in negative territory since the start of 2019. Job Advertisements in Australia averaged 142458.66 from 1999 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 258084.89 in April of 2008 and a record low of 69798.90 in July of 1999.
