South Australia's workforce has returned to pre-COVID-19 levels with more than 13,000 people finding jobs in August.
But the state's unemployment rate remained unchanged from July at 7.9 per cent, despite the national jobless rate falling unexpectedly to 6.8 per cent.
Innovation and Skills Minister David Pisoni said the state government continued to do all it could to create and retain local jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.
"Of course, there's more work to be done, and today's stats reflect the ongoing challenges ahead," he said.
In August 13,400 jobs were created, with 33,000 South Australians now finding work over the past three months.
The growth had returned the size of the state's labour force to levels similar to those before the pandemic struck, the government said.
It said more South Australians were also actively seeking job opportunities, reflecting growing confidence in the local economy.
