The increase in total employment in the first half of 2018 was largely driven by locals.
During this period, the number of locals entering employment (133,100) was higher than the number exiting (128,900). Compared to the same period last year, there was a higher number of entries among the locals, and a lower number of exits.
Majority of entries were into jobs in community, social & personal services (such as education, public administration & defence, health & social sciences), admin & support services, F & B and professional services. They occurred among the young aged below 30.
For more information on the concepts and definition of entries and exits data, please refer to the Technical Note on Entries and Exits in Local Employment.
