Weak economic growth in Tasmania in 2016 was impacted by contractions in electricity, gas, water and waste services (-8.2 per cent), and agriculture, forestry and fishing (-4 per cent).
Tassie is small, cold, and quite remote on the map, but the state can potentially achieve sustainable growth if it capitalises on its points of difference to attract investment and tourism from China.
As the population of Australia grows over time and a smaller percentage share of Aussies own their homes outright, we can of course expect to see the dollar value of interest payable on dwellings increasing.
That represents a huge affordability dividend for homeowners since the financial crisis.
It's important to note that these numbers are derived, so users should be wary of drawing strong conclusions from the absolute numbers, which are impacted by age distribution, the share of the population in employment, and imputed rents.
For example, the ACT always records by far the highest per capita numbers, simply because the participation rate is higher than elsewhere (retirees are not exactly flocking to Canberra for its temperate beach lifestyle, after all).

While exports are now increasing from certain regions such as the Pilbara and Gladstone, growth in real economy has flipped back into the capital cities since 2012.
