Cradle Coast Region

Resident workers (Regional) - Field of qualification

There are more regional labour force qualified in Engineering and Related Technologies in the Cradle Coast Region than in any other field.

Industry sector data identifies the industries in which the resident workers of the region work either within the region or elsewhere.

This is indicative of the skill base and (to some extent) the socio-economic status and industry structure of the region.

The industries that are prominent in the region are strongly related to a range of factors including:

  • The economic base and employment opportunities available within commuting distance;
  • The educational levels of the local population; and
  • The working and social aspirations of the local population.

The Cradle Coast Region resident worker region is defined by an area in which a significant percentage of workers travelled into the Cradle Coast Region to work at the 2011 Census. Details of this calculation and a list of areas included can be found in the data notes, while the boundary of the region is mapped on the about the area page.
