On Thursday, labour force figures will be released for the country.

The report will include statistics on family finances, concerns around interest rates, deteriorating housing affordability and rising energy prices.

It will also include a quarterly update on underemployment - people in work but seeking additional hours.

In May, the number of people considered underemployed was 1.1 million, a rate of 8.8 per cent and just below February's 8.9 per cent record high.
