This paper provides an analysis of commuting patterns on the Sunshine Coast and from the Sunshine Coast to other Local Government Areas in south east Queensland. This is done for persons of different levels of education. Human capital theory suggests that commuting patterns may vary by level of education and this is explicitly tested in this study. Data from the 2001 Census of population and housing are used to undertake this analysis.
