City of Joondalup

Employment self-sufficiency - Industry

“In 2011 57.5% of the City of Joondalup’s local workers were residents and this proportion has decreased 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.

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) – Census 2006 and 2011 – by place of work

PLEASE NOTE: The economy.id definition of self-sufficiency differs from that of the Western Australian state government. The WA definition of self-sufficiency has been used to define “Employment capacity” in economy.id, so please view this topic for compatible data. For more information see the specific topic notes .
