The last major contraction experienced by the Australian economy took place over the period 1989/90 - 1992/93. In that recession aggregate employment fell by 7.5 percent in Victoria but only by 2.9 percent in New South Wales. This paper aims to do two things. First, to explain why there was such a large difference in the employment experience of the two states during the recession. Second, to demonstrate that more than one shift-share decomposition may be used in an attempt to isolate the contribution of industry-mix c.f. differential growth to the difference in the reduction in employment between the two states.
