Deciding the occupations on this list, NSW uses Commonwealth and state employment data, as well as evidence, supported feedback from NSW industry.

Economically the state has always done good, from having industries such as steel and shipbuilding in the older times to the current market being dominated by MNC’s and IT companies along with the Finance sector. Even though the current market is dominated by MNC’s and IT and Finance companies, agriculture remains important and contributes to the state’s income. The state offers employment benefits to highly skilled international applicants under the Skilled nominated migration (190).
