1. Are there additional labour market factors, for which there are national datasets available (ideally aligned to 6-digit ANZSCO occupation level), that are relevant to future refinements to the Departmentʼs analysis and methodology?

What is the frequency of data release?

ACM are not aware of any other datasets that would assist this process

2. The Department is also seeking submissions on suitable datasets that are disaggregated by region. Please provide details if you are aware of such a dataset, including whether it is aligned to ANZSCO occupations and how often the dataset is updated.

ACM are not aware of any other datasets that would assist this process

3. Is there any other advice or evidence that the Department should consider in its review of the methodology?

The methodology looks sound and will potentially wield excellent data, as long as the team are able to access the data, and it is in a meaningful format and can be easily interpreted.
The ACM would be interested in details pertaining to midwifery from the following datasets is it is possible for this to be shared/made available (as this is notoriously hard to obtain):
• Graduate Outcomes—Graduate Careers Australia: Graduate Outcomes Data and Field of Education Occupation Destination data
• Employment Growth Projections—Department of Employment Occupational Projections: Five Years to May 2022 (based on ABS data)
• Vacancies—Department of Employment Internet Vacancies Index for occupations by skill level, as well for all states/territories.
• Australian (National) Skill Shortages—Department of Employment: Skill Shortage Analysis
• Age Profile—ABS Labour Force Survey: Employed Persons Median Age by Occupation, and DIBP Subclass 457 Visa Grant Data
• Salary—ABS salary data and Subclass 457 Visa Grant Base Nominated Salary Data (not published).
