Abstract:     
I use Feenstra and Hanson’s (2003) outsource-driven framework to investigate the effect of imports in intermediate inputs on the demand for skilled and unskilled labor in Australia. Using a panel data on six two-digit manufacturing industries over the period from 1986/87 to 1994/95, the results suggest that trade in the form of intermediate goods appear to have caused some changes in the skill structure of Australian manufacturing industries.
