We’re in the midst of the Great Recession, but the Australian dollar has been on the decline for years.
The global economy has grown much faster than in Australia, and the country’s economy is on track to grow by around 1 per cent a year over the next few years.
While the economy’s outlook remains difficult, we’ve seen some solid growth in the past few months, which is encouraging.
There are signs of a revival in Australia’s job market, too.
The unemployment rate has been steadily falling in recent months.
A report from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) found that while unemployment in the first half of 2017 had fallen to 2.6 per cent, that number had fallen slightly to 2 per cent in the second half.
That is the lowest level of unemployment since the late 1990s, when unemployment was around 6 per cent.
While unemployment is not an easy thing to measure, there’s evidence that it is down to a combination of factors including a slowing economy and the fact that Australia’s workforce has rebounded.
In 2017, there were more than 3 million jobs in the economy, down by around 7,000 from the previous year.
In 2018, there will be about 4 million jobs.
It’s a positive sign that the economy is starting to bounce back, but there is still a lot of work to do.
There’s still some way to go, though.
Key facts Australia has a high degree of inequality: The median income in Australia is now higher than the median income of the US, and higher than that of Japan, New Zealand, France and Germany.
The median household income in the country is now less than that in the UK, France, Italy, Germany and Japan.
Australia is one of the countries where the median disposable income is less than half of that in Japan, the US and Germany, and less than a third of that of the UK.
The average family income is $42,000, lower than the US average of $58,600.
The household debt level is now below 50 per cent of disposable income, the lowest since the early 1990s.
In 2016, Australia had a household debt burden of $9,000 per person.
The figure is lower than in 2011, when it was $13,000.
While Australia has managed to reduce household debt over the past decade, there is little sign of this being enough to meet its growing budget deficits.
In 2020, the household debt ratio is expected to be around 70 per cent – the lowest in the OECD.
Australia’s economy grew at a solid rate in 2017 and 2018.
The gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annual rate of around 2.3 per cent between 2018 and 2019, while the unemployment rate fell by around 0.5 per cent over the same period.
The RBA is forecasting GDP growth of 2.7 per cent for 2020.
The Bureau of Statistics (BIS) expects GDP growth to average 2.9 per cent this year, which will be the highest since 2016.
Australia has also made some big strides in reducing its unemployment rate over the last few years, which has seen the number of people who are looking for work fall from a peak of 11.5 million in 2008 to just over 5 million in 2020.
However, unemployment has continued to be a problem in the job market.
A recent report from BIS economists found that Australia still had a high proportion of people with workless unemployment.
Of the 12.2 million people who were jobless in 2018, more than 2 million were on zero-hours contracts.
In 2019, the number was 2.4 million, and it has now surpassed the level seen in the early 2000s.
There have also been concerns about a significant increase in the number who are being underemployed.
In recent months, there have been a number of notable examples of underemandered labour.
For example, in June 2018, a total of 14,500 workers were sent off to the scrapyard, leaving more than 7,500 Australians out of work.
A number of other companies have also found themselves in trouble with the Australian Tax Office (ATO) for unpaid tax.
In June 2018 the ATO reported that the number had increased by more than 200,000 since it was last published in December 2016.
However the ATOM is still expected to recover by 2019.
While some companies are taking steps to reduce underempression, others have remained stuck in the same spot.
There is a clear pattern to Australia’s unemployment situation.
While it may not be a bad thing to have a job, the jobless rate is the second-highest in the world, behind only Ireland.
For some, the situation is particularly frustrating.
“If you’re unemployed for 12 months, you can go on a year’s notice without having a job,” said former Labor minister Andrew Robb.
“It’s a hell of a lot easier to find a job than
