The latest Australian Labour Market for Migrants report is now available.

The July 2023 report shows that labour market conditions in Australia are robust. However, the strong pace of employment growth will be difficult to sustain, and the Australian labour market is not immune to the international forces driving higher inflation and slower global growth.

This edition’s ‘hot topic’ section provides an overview of the Australian population, including key labour market data for each state and territory. In this section, you’ll also find comparison data for recently arrived and established migrants, and a summary of the revised population growth forecasts. For more information, the full report is available on our website.

This report provides high-level data and analysis on the Australian labour market, to better inform people interested in working in Australia on a temporary or permanent basis, and organisations providing services to migrants and potential visa applicants.
