  • The age of the population;
  • The types of industries and occupations located in District Council of Mount Remarkable 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 Remarkable, and;
  • The mobility of the population to move where particular skills are required.
