Experimental Gross Regional Product estimates

Date published:

Gross Regional Product (GRP) is an estimate of each region’s unique contribution to the national economy. While Australian regional economies are interlinked, GRP can be used as an indicator of local economic activity.

BCARR has produced experimental estimates of GRP for 2015-16 and 2020-21. Estimates are produced using the ABS Statistical Areas Level 4 which broadly represents local labour markets. Information is also provided regarding GRP estimates for Northern Australia, which spans across Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

These estimates are indicative of the economic activity in a region and should be used with caution. See the fact sheet for the conceptual and data limitations which may affect the estimates.
