Manufacturing employment in Australia declined by 9.6 per cent, or 99,000 jobs, in the 5 years to December 2013. This staff research paper examines how Australia adapted to the considerable decline in manufacturing employment.

The paper builds on previous research that has attempted to quantify the relationship between structural change and unemployment.
