Industry Map 2016

22 February 2017

The interactive Industry Map has been released by the Office of the Chief Economist. This tool can help unlock industry trends in a region. It contains the Office of the Chief Economist's first issue of Gross Regional Product (GRP) estimates. It also includes business counts, population estimates, labour force status and industry employment information.

The benefits of Australia's economic growth have been unevenly distributed across Australia. Some regional areas are not performing as well as capital cities, which has implications for the sustainability of remote and regional areas.

For a more in-depth analysis of why some regions perform better than others and what government can do to support their economic growth, see chapter 7 of the Australian Industry Report 2016.
