Australia Employment

by Stephan Smith on February 8, 2012

Hello and welcome to the Australia Employment page. This is the page where I will be posting information regarding Australia’s employment statistics. Statistics like Australia’s employment numbers, unemployment numbers and its unemployment rate.

The reason I am doing this, is so I can provide value to you by maintaining Australia’s historical and current employment statistics in a centralized location so that you wouldn’t have to search feverishly for this information elsewhere. I am also providing my commentary where I have input. Australia’s employment information is provided and distributed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
