About the unemployment rate
Australia The unemployment rate reported by the Bureau of Statistics is the number of unemployed workers divided by the total civilian labor force. A rate hike would signal a lack of expansion in the Australian labour market. As a result, the rise has led to a weakening of the Australian economy. A decline in the number is seen as positive (or bullish) for the Australian dollar, while a rise is seen as unfavorable (or bearish).
