The unemployment rate in Australia has fallen from 9.9% in March 2017 to 7.6% in August 2018.
While that is an improvement, it is still a much lower rate than the US, where the rate stands at 11.9%.
This is in part because the US is much more heavily dependent on the mining industry.
The US unemployment rate is currently 5.6%, while the Australian rate is 3.3%.
The UK, which has the second-lowest unemployment rate, is also struggling to keep pace with the US.
The unemployment rates in Britain, Denmark and Norway are all around 7% or higher.
The UK unemployment rate of 7.4% is much lower than the current US rate of 11.8%.
The unemployment figures have been published by the Bureau of Statistics and released at the start of each month.
However, there is an important caveat with the figures: there is no way to know exactly what the US unemployment rates are at the time of the last survey.
There are also no official statistics available for the UK and Australia.
There is a tendency to think that unemployment is a bad thing because people are leaving the workforce to look for work.
However unemployment rates can also be good for the economy.
It can be used as a way to gauge the extent of the economy’s problems, as well as helping to guide policy decisions.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics has been keeping an eye on the unemployment rate over the past two years.
In the last two surveys, they reported a rate of 8.4%, which was below the headline figure of 8% in November 2017.
It was a fall from the headline rate of 9.4%.
In fact, the unemployment figure dropped from 9% in February 2018 to 7% in July 2018.
What causes the unemployment?
Unemployment is a complex issue, with different factors involved.
The biggest problem is the decline in the number of people who have found work.
In 2018, the number was down by 1.5 million, or 11%.
In the first six months of 2019, the total number of unemployed people was down from 2.6 million to 2.2 million.
There were also 1.1 million fewer people who were actively looking for work in the months of March and August 2018 than in the years before that.
This means that, on average, there were fewer people looking for employment in the same period.
Unemployment is also likely to be an effect of the decline of the mining sector.
In February 2018, there was an increase in the labour force participation rate, which is the proportion of people with jobs in Australia.
However in July 2017, this rate fell to its lowest level since July 2008.
The rate also fell to the lowest level recorded since August 2005.
What are the other reasons behind the fall in the unemployment numbers?
The unemployment statistics are also impacted by other factors, such as the growth in household formation.
There was a decrease in the amount of people aged 15-64 who were looking for a job in July and August.
This was due to an increase of about 100,000 people between July and September.
But this was offset by an increase at the same time of people over 65 who are working part-time or looking for part-years.
This increased labour force employment was also partly offset by a fall in people working part time in the three months before the end of the month.
A rise in part-timers was also noted in the previous two months.
What is the outlook for the unemployment rates over the next two years?
There are some important caveats that need to be taken into account.
There may be a drop in the overall unemployment rate as a result of the fall, which could lead to more people looking at the unemployment benefits system.
The next survey will be released in February 2019.
This will allow for a clearer picture of the current situation and allow for policy makers to decide how to respond.
If the unemployment figures are lower than expected, there could be some political fallout, which would have a negative impact on the economy, which in turn would affect the job market.
But the number is still expected to fall further in the next few years.
So what are the risks of a fall?
The most obvious risk would be that there would be fewer people actively looking.
However the number could be lower than anticipated if the unemployment statistics did not reflect the real economy.
The Australian Bureau of Economics also points out that a fall of 1% is not a big risk.
But that could happen if there is a surge in unemployment.
There could also be a rise in the economy if the jobless rate is still higher than the headline unemployment rate.
The most severe risk is that the number would fall below 8%.
The number could also drop below 7% if there were a sudden fall in mining activity.
These are the potential risks that could affect the outlook.
What does the outlook mean for the 2018 Federal Budget?
The Government has been projecting the number for 2018 to be about 8.8 million.
