Output by industry is a gross measure of the total sales of each industry sector in the Grow South East (South East Metropolitan Region). It does not measure how productive each industry sector is at producing this output - which is measured by value added.
By comparing the output of each industry sector to a regional benchmark, you can clearly see the structure of the Grow South East (South East Metropolitan Region)’s economy. This can be done by directly comparing the percentage contribution of each industry to the total output, relative to the benchmark, or by using a location quotient, where a number greater than one indicates a high concentration of that industry and less than one indicates a lower concentration.
To get the full picture how each industry sector contributes to the regional or state economy, output data should be viewed alongside the other industry characteristics in the Industry sector analysis section.
Detailed data notes about how the figures are derived can be found in the specific topic notes section.
The gross measure of output includes the value of all the inputs to each industry.
