City of Greater Bendigo

Employment self-containment - Industry

In 2011, 76.8% of City of Greater Bendigo’s resident workers were employed locally and this proportion has decreased since 2006.

Self-containment measures the proportion of resident workers who are employed within the boundaries of the Local Government Area or region. It indicates the propensity of residents to seek employment outside the Local Government Area or region in which they live.

Self containment is likely to be higher for regional areas and, 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-containment data should be viewed in conjunction with detailed Residents place of work data to see where resident workers are accessing employment, along with Jobs to workers ratio data which provides the theoretical number of jobs which could be provided to residents of the City of Greater Bendigo in the local area, and is updated annually. The Resident workers section will provide the characteristics of resident workers.
