      Productivity is a complex issue, but may be simply defined as output produced per worker, measured by the number of hours worked. On this basis we have seen a modest spike in productivity growth.   The Progress in Australian Regions—Yearbook is a statistical resource that measures progress in a region against social, economic, environmental and governance indicators. The Yearbook brings together information about Australia's regions from a range of different sources and presents that data in a consistent format over time.

      5. Infrastructure Development and Regional Connectivity Infrastructure development and regional connectivity is integral to the economic development of regional Australia. An efficient transport system is a basic precondition for improving the competitiveness of regions and for underpinning a polycentric spatial framework. Construction performance and productivity improvement are. The attributes having the factor loading more than are quality, supply chain, political and economic environment, and social.
