Resident workers - Key statistics

2,803 people or 27.8% of Alexandrina Council's resident workers have a tertiary qualification.

The local labour force includes all employed people who are resident in the local area regardless of where they work. In other words, it is the people who live locally and therefore have the potential to work locally and is an important resource for the local economy. Their characteristics inform us about the skills that are available locally, even if they are not currently employed in the local economy.
