Gympie Regional Council
Employment self-sufficiency - Industry
“In 2011 91.5% of the Gympie Regional Council’s local workers were residents and this proportion has increased since 2006.
Self-sufficiency measures the proportion of local workers in the local area who also live in the Local Government Area or region. It indicates the level at which the resident workers meet the labour requirements of the local industries or businesses.
Self-sufficiency is likely to be higher for regional areas, lower in metropolitan areas and is influenced by:
- The nature of employment opportunities versus the skills and qualifications of residents;
- Transport options available and commuting times;
- Relationship between wages and salaries and house prices in the area; and
- The geographic size of the area.
Employment self-sufficiency data should be viewed in conjunction with detailed Workers place of residence data to see how far workers are travelling to access employment in the area, as well as Worker productivity and Local workers income and Local workers hours worked data to look at the value of local workers contributions. The Resident workers section will provide the characteristics of resident workers.
