How much do you really know about Australia’s unemployment crisis?
The unemployment rate is currently 4.4 per cent.
This means that, despite the government’s attempts to ease the pressure on households, the jobless rate is still well above the national average of 4.2 per cent, and is still higher than the national rate of 4 per cent in 2015.
The rate of unemployment in Australia has been on a steady downward trend for years.
This has been the case even as the number of jobs has been growing.
The jobless rates for men and women have also been in the same range for years, and the unemployment rate for people over the age of 25 is still significantly higher than in most other OECD countries.
A new analysis by the Institute for Public Policy Research and the Australian National University suggests that the job market is still far from robust, with the unemployment rates for workers in full-time work, part-time, and casual work all more than five percentage points above the official rate.
The report, The Job Market in Australia, is the result of a two-year project by the institute and the universities.
The findings of this report show that, over the past year, there has been a gradual tightening of the labour market, as well as a significant increase in the number and types of people being placed in work.
There is still an unemployment rate that is well above its average level, and more than six percentage points higher than at any point since 2011.
In the short term, the impact of the tightening has been felt across a range of sectors, including the services sector, construction, manufacturing, and agriculture.
However, the impacts of the tightening have also affected workers in other sectors.
The tightening in the economy is largely attributable to the fact that there is a large number of people unemployed.
This is partly due to a combination of factors: the economic slowdown in the world economy, a reduction in population growth, and a reduction of the supply of skilled workers, as employers seek to cut costs.
The number of unemployed Australians has increased by almost three per cent over the last year, and some of this is due to the ageing of the population.
The unemployment rates in some industries, such as manufacturing, have been higher than average.
However in other industries, the unemployment has been lower than expected.
For example, in the mining industry, there is currently a large amount of uncertainty about the future of the mining sector.
The uncertainty around this sector, and other industries where uncertainty about future economic developments is high, has had an impact on job vacancies.
In 2017, there were around 7,500 vacant jobs in the construction sector, around 10 per cent of the total vacancies in the industry.
This suggests that many construction companies are looking at the future and trying to find suitable staff to fill the vacancies.
There has been an increase in temporary workers being employed in construction, but this has been offset by a decrease in permanent workers, which have been increasingly used in seasonal jobs.
In manufacturing, the trend in the labour force participation rate is now lower than it was in 2010, with only about half of all people aged 25-34 participating in the workforce.
In this sector alone, around 1.5 million people are currently working in this sector.
In agriculture, there have been two increases in temporary labour in the past two years.
One was a small increase in permanent seasonal workers, while the other was an increase of temporary workers in the hospitality and retail sectors.
These changes in the way people are being employed are being offset by an increase for permanent workers.
The most recent employment statistics released in December 2017 show that there were 4.8 million people working in the agriculture and fishing industries, down from 6.9 million in 2017.
The largest growth was in the forestry and fishing sector, with growth of about 4 per for every 1,000 people.
There were also some decreases in retail employment, which was the case in 2017, but the employment rate in the retail sector has been rising, and has now been above 4 per 1,400 people.
The trend in temporary employment has been slower than expected, and while this trend is expected to slow in coming years, the overall unemployment rate remains well above average.
