Here we present how the economic foundations of each locality have changed over time, identifying the traditional sectors of Agriculture, Mining and Manufacturing which dominated many areas in the nineteenth century, but also breaking down services into those which, broadly, sell directly to consumers; those which deal mainly with other buinesses, including financial services; and public services, including education and health.
