NSW Unemployment by region. Riverina and Orana fair very well indeed. Shoalhaven not quite as well, but interestingly still better than many parts of Sydney.

Very interesting graph indeed and great it came from a Departmental source. I also found it interesting that the Riverina and Far West are at the better end of the graph – agriculture is hopefully doing ok in these areas now….
I found it interesting that Newcastle is quite high, and Parramatta for that matter. Maybe coal and other industries traditionally in Newcastle aren’t doing as well now. I assume Wollongong would be in the Southern Highlands – Shoalhaven line?? (Even though Wollongong is quite different to Southern Highlands as a population group).
It is brilliant that these are Sept14 figures – I’ll be keeping this link for future reference!

Thanks Chris for the encouraging words!
“Illawarra” is listed as a separate area to “Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven” it is sitting at number 12 just above half way up.
Illawarra employment appears to have firmed up in recent years if my memory of older data serves me correctly. Good sign for the local economy down my way…its been due for an improve
All the best using it anyway.
