Where can I find the number of new listings on the ASX that have been made each month?

The data you are looking for is in the file Newfloats that may be downloaded from the Data Files Page on www.bwts.com.au. Go to http://www.bwts.com.au/index.cfm/resources/data-files/ and open either the Insight Trader data file or the ASCII data file.

You can also collect the data yourself from the ASX website at http://www.asx.com.au/asx/research/recentFloats.do. The ASX show the last two months of new listings. Add up the number of listings that have dates in the month you want. Note that this must be done regularly because the list is only the last two months.
