RDA Yorke and Mid North Region

Jobs to workers ratio

The jobs to residents ratio for RDA Yorke and Mid North Region in 2017/18 was 0.97, meaning that there were less jobs than resident workers. Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services had the highest ratio (1.27), while the lowest ratio was found in Mining (0.31).

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 RDA Yorke and Mid North 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.
