CONTRIBUTION TO EMPLOYMENT GROWTH

Victoria’s labour market is strong with above-trend employment growth, a low unemployment rate and a high participation rate. Victoria’s employment grew by 3.8 per cent over the year to the March quarter 2019. 

Employment growth was mostly driven by an increase in full-time employment, which contributed 3.5 percentage points to total employment growth. A strong labour market will help support consumers and the economy.
