Australia's unemployment rate is expected to remain unchanged at 5.6 per cent in November.

The median forecast is for the number of Australians with a job to have risen by about 20,000 in the month, after lifting by 9,800 in October, according to an AAP survey of 14 economists.

Economists also expect the latest labour force figures, due to be released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on Thursday, to show a slight increase in the participation rate to 64.5 per cent, up from 64.4 per cent a month ago.
