Summary
  • Geographic labour mobility is an important element of a well-functioning labour market. By improving matches between employers and workers, geographic labour mobility can contribute to economic efficiency and community wellbeing. This report was commissioned by the Federal Government to examine the role of geographic mobility in more detail. It investigates patterns of mobility, the key determinants of mobility, the effectiveness of market signals, and the major impediments to geographic labour mobility. This report presents the findings of the study and recommendations on how government can improve geographic labour mobility in Australia.
