High unemployment at a time of low unemployment

1 Nov 2005
Description

In 2004-05, Australia had an average annual unemployment rate of 5.3 per cent, the lowest rate in 28 years. Despite a low rate of general unemployment, there are still many groups in the community for whom the unemployment rate is well into double digits, or more than twice the average rate. Tony Kryger looks at these groups - teenagers, Indigenous Australians, single parents, recent arrivals to Australia and certain nationalities of migrants - who comprise the most disadvantaged members of the labour market.
