Greater Burnie Economic Region

Jobs to workers ratio

The jobs to residents ratio for Greater Burnie Economic Region in 2018/19 was 0.94, meaning that there were less jobs than resident workers. Wholesale Trade had the highest ratio (1.26), while the lowest ratio was found in Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services (0.46).

A goal of economic development is often to maximise the employment opportunities locally, leading to a more socially and environmentally sustainable community.

Employment capacity is a simple way of looking at whether Greater Burnie Economic Region could theoretically provide jobs for all its residents if they were to choose to work locally.

Employment capacity is simply the number of local jobs in an industry, divided by the number of local residents employed (anywhere) in that industry. A figure over 1.0 means there are more jobs available than residents employed in that industry. Under 1.0 means there are more residents employed than jobs available in that sector.

This is a theoretical exercise as, even if there are enough jobs provided locally, there will always be some people who choose to commute out of the area.

Employment capacity data should be viewed in conjunction with Self-containment and Residents place of work data, which provides detail about the actual proportion of residents working locally, and Gross Regional Product and Worker productivity data which shows the economic contribution of residents and workers.
