Dataset: Job Seeker Compliance Data


The Department of Jobs and Small Business publishes quarterly reports on a range of job seeker compliance data.

Quarterly compliance data has been available on the department's website since 2006. The data relates to those job seekers on activity tested income support payments for the relevant quarter, and many of the indicators are broken down by categories such as age, gender, payment type, indigeneity and employment service programme - i.e. jobactive, Disability Employment Services (DES) and the Community Development Programme (CDP).

The data includes a range of statistics on job seeker attendance at appointments with employment services providers, income support payment suspensions, the number and type of non-compliance reported and the number of participation failures and financial penalties applied.
