The taxable income database contains small-area data from 1980–81 to 2004–05 on a number of indicators. The main indicator is the amount of taxable income each region earns, the change in which can be used as an indicator of economic growth.

In the interactive pdfs accompanying the update, BITRE has created over a hundred maps and many supporting graphs which allow you to explore inter-regional comparisons and time series of regional growth in Australia. These are often at the local government level.
