Identifying Sydney's economic, employment and population Centres of Gravity
Cities are engines of growth and innovation. While all cities have these key functions, the best cities organise themselves to maximise their potential. They ensure they have the public transport networks, housing densities, skills and governance needed to manage and leverage growth.
However, it is increasingly recognised that also at the heart of effective 'city performance-management' are the analytical tools which enable a better understanding of the key forces or trends shaping the city.
Although there is now a big literature on 'city analytics' and measures of urban performance, there is not as yet a universally agreed assessment framework or set of indicators enabling us to identify the key factors of success or failure.
There is a plethora of competing and often inconsistent city performance league tables or indices. In this context the Committee for Sydney and Committee member PwC have released an Issues Paper seeking to elevate the importance of using emerging analytic tools to understand and manage city performance. The analysis was carried out for all major Australian cities with an in-depth look at Sydney.
Big city thinking requires big city analytics.
