A Table showing the net increases (decreases) in full time positions after allowing for population changes is:

  • 33,447 Victoria
  • 8,653 South Australia

  • 3,519 Northern Territory
  • 3,334 Tasmania
  • 2,337 Australian Capital Territory

The above is calculated, purely to rank the States, using the the following example calculations:

Victoria:

Population Increase 27,276 over 3 months

Therefore the Net increase = 60,273 – 27276 = 33,447
