So that should represent the proportional change in aggregate hours worked in each state. This will of course also be correlated with employment and population growth by state.
I have tried to match states to colour here although must say was disappointed by the maroon shades offered in Excel! ACT drew last straw and took yellow!
Tasmania is clearly a concern also reflected I suspect by big swings at last weekends election. ACT is actually interesting. What happened to that ever growing army of public servants in Canberra sucking the national economic lifeblood? Bludgers probably all went home early on a Friday afternoon something you would never find in the hard working Cairns private sector!
