Formatted abstract The primary aims of this thesis are to measure the extent of occupational and spatial misdirect ions in the demand for labour in a regional labour market, and to indicate the overall economic conditions under which these misdirections in the demand for labour are significant. In order to fulfill such aims, unemployment levels in the National labour market and the regional labour market under study are disaggregated into their cyclical, frictional and structural components of unemployment . It is found that spatial misdirection in demand for labour in the Toowoomba regional labour market is significant when the demand for labour is strong. This Thesis also attempts} as a subsidiary aim, to suggest polices which might reduce the incidence of spatial rnisdirection in demand for labour in this region. This is carried out by (a) analysing the skill characteristics of the people employed due to a spatial misdirection in the demand for labour, and (b) examining selected f2atures of econornic activity in the Toowoomba region.
