Census stats show healthcare is now the nation's top employer
More Australians than ever before are now working in the healthcare and social assistance sector, which has been crowned the largest primary employment industry in the nation.
Healthcare and social assistance now accounts for 11.6 per cent of the nation’s employment, toppling the retail trade and manufacturing sector which held the top spot in 2006 and now sits in second position, employing 10.5 per cent of Australians.
The healthcare and social assistance sector includes allied health professionals, such as physiotherapists and occupational therapists, along with nurses, dentists, doctors, child care workers and aged care providers.
