Tasmania's increase in employment shows the importance of a strong and growing economy, Premier Peter Gutwein says.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated Tasmania added 1200 jobs in December in trend terms, taking total employment to a record 255,000.
Mr Gutwein said more than 20,000 jobs had been created since the state Liberals took government in early 2014.
"Importantly, and pleasing to see, is that of the 7100 jobs created in the 2019 year, over half those were female positions," he said.
"Notably, our annual jobs growth ranks us now equal first with Victoria amongst the states and our unemployment rate continues to fall, sitting at 5.8 per cent in trend terms for December 2019.
"These figures follow on from the strong results in the Deloitte Access Economics report, which couldn't be any clearer when it said: 'The bottom line? Tasmania has had a beautiful run, and it hasn't finished yet.' "
State Treasury analysis showed Tasmania had the strongest employment growth rate of any state or territory in December (0.5 per cent).
The next best was the Northern Territory, with 0.3 per cent.
Full-time employment was estimated to have grown by 700 jobs in December and part-time employment by 500.
For the full-year, full-time employment increased by 2400 and part-time employment by 4600.
Separate federal government figures released on Wednesday showed Tasmanian job vacancies newly lodged on three online recruitment sites were down by 9.5 per cent in December compared to December 2018.
They increased by 0.5 per cent compared to November.
The strongest demand was for professionals, technicians and tradies and clerical and administrative services workers.
