Long-Term Unemployment Higher In Regional Victoria
A greater proportion of unemployed people are out of work for a year (long-term unemployed) or more in regional Victoria than in Melbourne, according to a new quarterly publication, State and Regional Indicators, Victoria released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
Throughout the period April to November 2001, the proportion of unemployed people who were long-term unemployed, was higher in regional areas outside Melbourne. In November 2001, more than a quarter (26.5%) of the 38,900 unemployed Victorians living outside Melbourne, had been out of work for a year or more. However, among Melbourne's 108,400 unemployed people, the proportion of long-term unemployed was 16.8%.
