Australian employment increases May 2010

Employment This graph from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows the increase in Australian employment since May 2090. As a consequence, the Australian unemployment rate as measured by the statistics has dropped to 5.2 per cent.

In a post on my personal blog, Economic clouds gather, I wondered about the sustainability of the current Australian recovery.

I am still wondering. However, for the moment things remain positive.

Employment is generally a lagging indicator. The continued increase in employment should feed into further growth through increased demand.
