The field of study relates to a number of factors, such as:

  • The age of the population;
  • The types of industries and occupations located in the District Council of Mount Barker or within commuting distance, and their qualification requirements;
  • The availability of educational institutions with those curricula nearby;
  • The socio-economic status of District Council of Mount Barker, and;
  • The mobility of the population to move where particular skills are required.

Field of Qualification should be looked at in conjunction with Qualification and Occupations statistics for a clearer picture of the skills available in the resident worker population.
