Employment trends in Australia

17 September 2015 by News Desk

jobs_workersThe number of people aged 25-64 employed in Australia has risen by 5% with around 9.4 million now in work.

More people are working part-time. In 2014, 25% of Australians aged 25–64 worked part-time, an increase of 4% compared to a decade ago.

With more Australians participating in the workforce, more families are relying on child care. Almost half of all Australian children up to the age of 12 regularly attend either formal or informal child care in 2014.

And a greater proportion of older Australians now participate in the labour force. The participation rate of those aged 55 and over increased to 35% in 2014.
