The following occupations were assessed in 2011 by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace
Relations specifically for Victoria (this list should be read together with the list of occupations assessed at the
national level) Occupational coverage in the research program has changed markedly over time. Lack of a rating
for an occupation does not necessarily imply 'no shortage,' it may be that the occupation was not assessed.
