Worker productivity gives an insight into the value workers provide in each industry sector. The productivity of workers relates to characteristics like the intrinsic value of the industry to the economy, automation and efficiency, and the type of jobs available in the industry in that area. To maintain a sustainable economy, regions need to have a mix of high and low value jobs in different industries.
To fully understand the worker productivity, this page should be viewed in conjunction with the number of workers (modelled employment).
Worker productivity is calculated by dividing the industry value add by the number of persons employed over the financial year. Regional differences in the worker productivity are inherent in the model, which is based on income tax return information from the ATO, relativities between industries calculated from Census data, and labour force survey information updated annually.
Please note that these modelled estimates are subject to change. Estimates are reviewed when more recent and robust data becomes available, particularly when new National or State Accounts data are released by the ABS, or new tax office income data are released. Most recent financial year estimates are based on a combination of factors including Centrelink and Labour Force Survey data, which is replaced by ATO income data when it becomes available. As a result of this, revisions to the most recent 6 quarters (18 months) of data should be anticipated by users, which could change the statistical outcomes.
