In national terms, there are 19 broad industries in Australia. In employment terms, the largest are Health Care and Social Assistance, Retail Trade and Construction which each employ more than 1 million workers. Manufacturing is also a large employer, with almost 950 000. These four industries combined, employ two in every five Australian workers.
It is interesting that, although the Mining industry experienced the largest percentage rise in employment (75.5%), it had only the fourth largest number of new jobs and accounts for 2% of national employment.
Over a five year period, employment fell in Manufacturing, but there are still more people employed in Manufacturing than there are in the Arts and Recreation Services; Information Media and Telecommunications; Rental, Hiring and Real Estate Services; and Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services industries combined. The decline in Manufacturing is part of a long-term trend reflecting structural adjustment in the Australian economy.
