FACTBase 36 - Perth’s prosperity through the 2008 Global Financial Crisis

Research output: Book/ReportOther output


This FACTBase investigates the impact of the 2008 Global Financial Crisis (GFC) on Australia’s capital cities by reviewing personal income between financial years 2004/05 to 2011/12 and consumer price changes for the period 2005-2012.
Personal income data is extracted from Taxation Statistics (Australian Taxation Office, years 2004/05 – 2011/12) and indexed for inflation according to a
weighted Consumer Price Index (CPI) average for eight Australian capital cities at 2012 prices.
Following on from the analysis in FACTBase 3 and 15 (Tonts, 2009; 2010), this FACTBase is divided into two sections. The first discusses taxable incomes and CPIs within Australian cities to understand where Perth sits within the national context. The second unpacks the uneven geographies of prosperity emerging amongst the 40 Statistical Local Areas (SLAs) that make up the Perth and Peel Metropolitan Region2. The smaller postcode spatial areas used by the ATO data have been adjusted to match SLAs using ABS (2012) concordance files.
