SA job­less rate third best in na­tion

The Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - ADAM LANGENBERG

SOUTH Aus­tralia’s un­em­ploy­ment rate has dropped to 5.6 per cent – the third low­est in the na­tion.

The state’s sea­son­ally ad- justed job­less rate, recorded in the Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics’ May data, fell by 0.3 per cent.

It was the equal big­gest re­duc­tion of any state or ter­ri­tory.

SA now trails only Vic­to­ria (5.1 per cent) and NSW (4.9 per cent) but is marginally above the na­tional rate, which sits at 5.4 per cent for the fifth con­sec­u­tive month.
