Special Article - Identifying growth areas


This article was published in Building Approvals, Australia (ABS Cat. no. 8731.0) May 2001


The rise in approvals in May is most evident in the outlying areas of Australia's capital cities, some of which are the traditional areas attracting first home buyers. The table below shows, for selected Statistical Local Areas (SLAs), the increase in new Private sector house approvals in May 2001 compared with the average number for the last three months. The SLA's are ordered by the size of the increase and only those with the largest increases are included.
