Economic Contribution Factsheets


CME surveys a sample of its members annually to quantify actual expenditure spent and estimate the direct and indirect contributions of the WA resources sector to the Western Australian and Australian economies through the payment of wages and salaries, business purchases, community contributions, local councils and payments to the State and Commonwealth Government.

The factsheets are divided into Western Australia’s Regional Development Commission boundaries. For technical details on how the indirect supply chain spending effects was modelled from actual expenditure, please see the research paper published to the Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy.
