Appendix E : Ranking of local governing bodies on a relative needs basis 2003-04

Councils often compare the grant they receive with the grants of other councils in their State and assume that, if another council gets a similar sized grant, both councils have been assessed as having similar relative needs. Such an assumption can be incorrect.

In determining the allocation of general purpose grants and the local road grants to councils, Local Government Grants Commissions implicitly determine a ranking for each council in their State on the basis of relative needs. A comparison of councils on the basis of relative needs is preferred to a comparison on the basis of the actual grant they receive.

In this Appendix, the grant per capita is used as the basis for the comparison of relative need for the general purpose grants. For local road grants, the allocation of grants for each council in 2003-04 is divided by their length of local roads to obtain a relative expenditure needs measure. In Tables E.1 to E.7, councils within a State are sorted on the value of the general purpose grant per capita, and the local road grants per kilometre. Each table gives each council's ranking, obtained for both grants.

Councils are ranked from the council in the greatest assessed relative need to the council in the least assessed relative need. For each State, the position of the average general purpose grant per capita and the average local road grant per kilometre are also shown within the ranking of councils. These State averages are taken from Tables 2.9 and 2.10 except in Western Australia and South Australia where special local road grants have been excluded from the local road grant per kilometre calculation for each council and the State average.

Councils should use these rankings when comparing the financial assistance grants they receive with the financial assistance grants other councils in their State receive. For instance, Appendix D shows that the Shire of Cooloola in Queensland (UFM) received $1 578 834 in general purpose grants in 2003-04 while the City of Caloundra (URL) received $1 259 890. The Shire of Cooloola's grant is around $46 per capita while the City of Caloundra's grant is almost $16 per capita. This suggests that the Queensland Local Government Grants Commission has assessed the Shire of Cooloola as having the greater relative need. In Table E.3, the Shire of Cooloola is shown to rank 127 among Queensland councils for general purpose grants while the City of Caloundra is a minimum grant council and is ranked 150.
