National economic indicators series

The National Economic Indicators Series is a set of key economic measures for every Local Government Area (LGA) in Australia. The series is drawn from National Economics (NIEIR) modeling and other relevant data sources and is updated annually.

The indicators provide a snapshot of each local economy at a point in time, showing how it contributes to the broader State economy and how it is performing in relation to other areas.

Tip: To fix table headers to the top of the table the full width of the table needs to be visible in your browser window. For small screens use CTRL - (minus) to zoom out. Click on the up and down arrows to sort the list in ascending or descending order on that parameter.
