Fourth Revision of ANZSCO Published

The ABS has published the update as follows:  

 

The ANZSCO 2021, Australian Update reflects a review of occupations associated with the following four areas: 


  • agriculture, forestry and fisheries 

  • cyber security 

  • naval ship building, and 

  • emerging occupations identified by the National Skills Commission¹. 


These areas are based on priority areas for the Australian labour market and were chosen to test a new approach to updating this classification. This update represents the first incremental step of a larger program of work to update this classification. Other priority areas are expected to be addressed in future regular updates of the ANZSCO. 

This update has been undertaken in respect of the Australian labour market only. It has not considered changes in the New Zealand labour market. 

This is the fourth revision since ANZSCO was established in 2006. In addition to the classification, this publication contains a summary of the classification and concordances to the previous revision (Version 1.3).
