Far North Unemployment Debacle

Kitchenslut is struggling somewhat here with his google docs embeddedment into blogger but will persist and, perhaps, one day triumph! Although a retreat into the culinary uses of vanilla beans may also be an option?

Whatever! These are the percentage unemployment percentages from the ABS for the Far North statistical region since the series commenced in 2007. Total numbers of unemplyed have risen to around 20,000. The participation rate, the percentage of working age people actually seeking work, has been quite stable generally throughout this period. I will try to update and improve the table and add graphics if possible!

These numbers are still little reported even in Cairns, let alone beyond, but should be regarded as unacceptable. When i stop dabbling with techie issues will try to update with further comment .....
