A diverse & robust economy

The City of Swan benefits from a strong economic environment in Perth’s north east metropolitan region.

With approximately 9,200 businesses providing employment to almost 78,450 workers, there are more jobs in Swan than the total number (71,300) of our employed residents.

Over the last decade, our gross regional product (GRP) has grown from $4.8 billion in 2004/05 to $9.7 billion in 2014/15. The number of people working in the City of Swan has increased by 31,300 over the same period and our local unemployment rate is consistently lower than state and national figures. In fact, all of our economic indicators have shown very positive results in recent years and we expect this to continue well into the future.
