Formatted abstract
In Australia, there has been little research at a regional level. Studies which have been undertaken have found the lack of data at this level and the scarcity of comparable research particularly limiting. With the model and study proposed in this thesis, it is hoped to provide a more adequate foundation. The specific purpose of this thesis is to assess the probable economic effects the situation of the Queensland Agricultural College at Lawes has on the township of Gatton. This involves considering existing theories for analysis at a regional level and adapting them to the characteristics of the particular study. Consideration of these approaches in the early chapters, then enables the actual framework adopted-the Intersectoral Flow Model-to be compared and contrasted with other forms of regional analysis. Because of the special construction of the Intersectoral Flow Model and its use of data, regional characteristics suited to the model are necessary to ensure adequate results. It is, then, proposed to consider the impact of the Queensland Agricultural College in this light. Firstly for formulate the model, consider its applicability to the local economy selected and, thus, once having set the framework, in which to conduct research, the result are analysed in later Chapters. Not only is the purpose to deal exclusively with the local economy of Gatton township but also consider the wider implications of Intersectoral Flows Model as a policy tool. Basically this involves looking to its applicability in other regional areas and a consideration of regional policy objectives. Given various conditions, it is possible to consider the model in this light.
