Examining the relationship between commuting patterns, employment growth and unemployment in the Sydney Major Statistical Region

8 Nov 2005
Description

Anthea Bill, Bill Mitchell and Martin Watts develops the labour market accounts framework to understand how employment growth and commuting patterns interact to determine the spatial distribution of unemployment in local areas of Sydney. The principal finding is that employment growth between 1996 and 2001 has elicited substantial changes in commuting behaviour, with women showing relatively greater in-commuting responsiveness to employment growth. Unemployment changes in local areas are swamped by commuting responses.
