Some industries are clustered in business parks, or along major transport routes. Others are associated with institutions such as schools, universities and hospitals.

Employment locations data should be viewed in conjunction with Workers place of residence data to see how far people travel to get to employment in the FNQROC, and with Employment by industry (Total) and Businesses by industry data to see the total size of industries in the area.

Data presented here show the number of local workers per destination zone at the 2016 Census. This has been derived from the ABS imputed dataset using methodology from the Bureau of Transport statistics, and adjusts for Census undercount.
