Commuting across Perth and Peel: unpacking patterns, measures and policy implications

Research output: Book/ReportOther output


This FACTBase will examine interregional commuting across Perth and Peel,
including the large fly-in fly-out workforce living in the metropolitan area and working in regional Western Australia. It identifies key areas of employment using 2011 ABS place of work and place of residence data disaggregated by local government area (LGA) as well as by metropolitan Perth and Peel sub-regions. It then outlines three comparative ratios to benchmark the home and work relationship – jobs/ housing balance, employment self-sufficiency and employment self-containment. These are computed for metropolitan planning sub-regions, and compared to the measure of employment self-sufficiency used
in Perth and Peel@3.5 Million. It concludes with a summary of key findings and policy recommendations and the merit of current measurements in addressing commuting issues.
