Australia's rate of unemployment has gone up, despite nearly 30,000 more jobs being created in October.
The unemployment rate jumped from 5.1% in September to 5.4% in October, because the number of people looking for work has increased.
The participation rate has increased by 0.3 percentage points to a record high of 65.9%.
That is generally seen as a good sign by economists, as it tends to indicate people are confident of finding work if they look, the ABC reports.
However, in contrast to recent months, it was a surge in part-time employment that boosted the figures, with an extra 43,800 part-time jobs. Full-time employment fell by 14,100.
