Formatted abstract Historically, the Queenslal1d labour market is characterised by higher rates of unemployment than the Australian average. Policy makers and commentators alike have partially attributed this structural difference to the persistent and high levels of net interstate migration into Queensland over the last two decades. To date, however, there has been no empirical analysis of the labour market effects of net interstate migration in Queensland.

This thesis examines the impacts of high net interstate migration on the Queensland labour market. This is achieved by considering the partial effects of net interstate migration on the labour supply and labour demand in Queensland. This thesis uses two econometric approaches, an error correction model (ECM) and a modified vector autoregressive model (mVAR).

This thesis concluded that net interstate migration significantly affects the Queensland unemployment rate through bot11 the labour supply and labour demand in Queensland. The empirical analysis in t11is t11esis does not provide a conclusive result regarding the net impact of net interstate migration on the Queensland unemployment rate.
