City of Brimbank

Employment (Total) by industry

In the City of Brimbank, Manufacturing is the largest employer, generating 12,661 local jobs in 2014/15.

Employment (total) is the most accurate and up to date measure of the total number of people employed in the City of Brimbank. The statistics are modelled by NIEIR to correct for the known undercount of jobs recorded in the Census. They estimate the total number of persons employed in an industry sector (full-time and part-time) in City of Brimbank regardless of where they live. They are updated annually.

By comparing the number of jobs in each industry sector to a regional benchmark, you can clearly see the structure of City of Brimbank's economy. This can be done by directly comparing the area to its benchmark, or by using a location quotient to look at the relative size of industries.

Estimated total employment by industry should not be considered as a "Full-Time Equivalent" measure as different industries will have different ratios of part-time and full time employees. Full-time employment by industry statistics are also available.

To see how employment is distributed across the area, see the Employment Locations section and to see where people come from to work in these industries, these data should be viewed in conjunction with Workers Place of Residence by Industry data.

More granular sub-categories for each industry sector are available in the Census Employment counts. While Census figures undercount employment they do provide a more detailed picture of the specific industries operating in the area.

NOTE: Detailed notes about how the figures are derived can be found in the specific topic notes section.
