Welcome to the fourth edition of the BCEC Monthly Labour Market Update.

Produced monthly, this economic commentary will explore the latest Labour Force data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), providing expert insights and analysis around key labour market indicators.

Key findings from July 2017 data include:

  • Australia is getting to work; there are 26,000 more people employed nationally than a month ago.
  • All roads lead to full time employment? Full-time employment continuing to grow and part-time employment growth easing.
  • WA’s employment figures are on the road to recovery, but not yet balanced.
