The smaller regions showed the largest percentage growth in both annual average number of filled jobs and average mean quarterly earnings in the year to June 2007, Statistics New Zealand said.

The Bay of Plenty and Hawke's Bay regions had the largest percentage increase in the annual average number of filled jobs (up 3.4 and 2.4 percent, respectively), compared with the national average increase of 1.9 percent in the year to June 2007. The Auckland region, which accounted for one-third of all filled jobs, had the largest annual increase in the number of filled jobs (up 11,290).

Gisborne region had the highest growth in average mean quarterly earnings for full-quarter jobs in the year to June 2007, increasing 5.8 percent to $9,130. Taranaki and Northland regions had the next-largest increase in average mean quarterly earnings in the June year, both increasing 5.6 percent (to $10,300 and $9,680, respectively).

This compares with the national average mean quarterly earnings increase of 4.4 percent (to $10,880). During this time Wellington and Auckland regions had the highest average mean quarterly earnings ($12,240 and $12,090, respectively).

Northland region had the highest filled job and earnings growth in the five years to June 2007, with 19.6 and 29.8 percent, respectively. This compares with the national average annual filled jobs and mean quarterly earnings of 16.4 and 23.2 percent, respectively, during the five years to June 2007.

These results come from statistics released today from Linked Employer-Employee Data (LEED). LEED uses information from existing taxation and Statistics NZ sources to provide a range of information on the dynamics of the New Zealand labour market.
