Description of Total Filled Jobs
The Total Filled Jobs, released by Stats NZ, is an indicator that measures paid jobs that existed in the week ending on the 20th of the reference month. It captures a ‘snapshot’ of filled jobs at a point in time. A growing number of jobs is a positive (bullish) input for the New Zealand dollar, while a decreasing number is negative (bearish) for the NZD.
