Productivity and Regional Economic Performance in Australia contains seven research articles that explore the productivity performance of Queensland and other Australian States. Queensland has experienced a long period of economic growth well above the Australian average. It has long been realised that much of this has been due to a strong net inflow of migrants. It is also well known that Queenslanders are comparatively young and active – our migrants tend to be of working age with families, and on average more of our working age population seek to work. But Queenslanders also work smart and hard – as papers in this book indicate, much of our growth has also been due to strong productivity growth.
