The gap in the chart relates to funding cuts for the ABS during the financial crisis, so you'll have to imagine what happened to vacancies then (spoiler: they plummeted).
The number of vacancies has surged 31 per cent higher over the past three years.
The annual change in job vacancies has now been in positive territory since 2014.
The economy has been stagnant in South Australia for some time, and job vacancies declined by 5.9 per cent over the year, while in Tasmania vacancies were down by 25.9 per cent.
The largest gain over the past year was in finance and insurance vacancies at 4,000, followed by healthcare and social assistance at 3,900.
The rebound in commodity prices seems to have underpinned employment in the mining sector, which may rise moderately over the year ahead.
The figures don't, however, provide a split between full time and part time positions, so the composition of vacancies is unclear.
