This FACTBase Bulletin investigates Fremantle’s investment flows using network connectivities in trade and labour commuting as proxies for broader economic movements. Social network analysis highlights links to other locations across Perth, the nation and the globe. The first section focuses on trade flows using international port and Western Australian (WA) locational data (Fremantle Ports, 2006, 2012, 2014). The second section details labour commuting using 2011 ABS journey-to-work data by Local Government Areas (LGAs) at the national and Greater Perth and Peel Metropolitan levels.
