NSW Continues to Lead the Nation on Jobs Growth

NSW continues to have the second lowest unemployment rate in the nation, adding 7,800 jobs in April.

The ABS figures show the State unemployment rate increased slightly from a revised 5.2 per cent to 5.4 per cent, but remains well below the national average of 5.8 per cent.

National economic uncertainty means our job figures remain vulnerable to fluctuations, however we are encouraged to see NSW added 7,800 jobs in April – more than half of the new jobs created nationally.

NSW continues to outperform all the States with 137,400 additional jobs created since March 2011.
