CommSec State of the States

Produced on a quarterly basis, CommSec's State of the States publication attempts to track how each state and territory economy is performing. Each jurisdiction is assessed on eight key indicators: state final demand (including exports less imports); retail spending; equipment investment; unemployment; construction work done; population growth; housing finance and dwelling commencements.

The economies of each jurisdiction are ranked by comparing current activity levels with decade averages. DTF continues to have concerns with this methodology as it does not identify the best performing economies, only the most improved economies relative to their respective 10-year average performance for each indicator.

For economic briefs older than last 2 years, please contact or call 08 8999 6801.
