District Council of Grant
Employment self-containment - Industry
In 2016, 32.8% of District Council of Grant’s resident workers were employed locally and this proportion has increased since 2011.1
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 District Council of Grant in the local area, and is updated annually. The Resident workers section will provide the characteristics of resident workers.
Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) – Census 2016 – by place of work
Please note – The 2016 Census used a new methodology to “impute” a work location to people who didn’t state their workplace address. As a result, 2016 and 2011 place of work data are not normally comparable. To allow comparison between 2011 and 2016, .id has sourced a 2011 dataset from the ABS which was experimentally imputed using the same methodology. However this dataset is NOT available at the Local Government Area level, and had to be matched using a best fit of work destination zones (DZNs) to the current LGA boundaries. District Council of Grant is one area for which there is no good match of 2011 DZNs to 2016 LGA boundaries, so there is no reasonable data comparison between 2011 and 2016 for this area. 2011 data has been turned off and is currently unavailable for comparison for District Council of Grant.
