Aberfoyle Park

Industry sector of employment

More Aberfoyle Park residents worked in health care and social assistance than any other industry in 2016.

Aberfoyle Park’s industry statistics identify the industry sectors in which the residents work (which may be within the residing area or elsewhere). This will be influenced by the skill base and socio-economic status of the residents as well as the industries and employment opportunities present in the region.

'What best describes the business of your employer?' and 'What are the main goods produced or main services provided by your employers business?'
