But over the last three months more jobs have been created in the mining industry despite a slowdown in demand from China, Australia’s biggest mining export market.

According to the Australia Bureau of Statistics, the biggest job-creating industries over the past three months were mining (19,300 new jobs); Education (15,900); construction (14,000); agriculture (6,400); hospitality (6,300); admin (6,000); services (5,900); creative (3,900).
