By comparing the value added of each industry sector to a regional benchmark, you can clearly see the structure of City of South Perth’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.
