Queensland Regional Profiles thumbnail

The Queensland Regional Profiles interface has been updated to allow an easier and more extensive selection of region combinations. In addition to now being able to create a State only profile, single or multi-region areas can be selected to compare to single or multi-region areas of your choice. Furthermore, some users’ systems will allow region selection by text searching and/or by interacting with a map. Summary region type details are also now available, along with a wide selection of report types covering various topics. All profiles are generated automatically using the latest demographic, social and economic data available.

Three reports for Queensland’s resource regions—the Bowen and Galilee Basins, the Surat Basin, and the Gladstone region—provide annual projections of fly‑in/fly‑out and drive‑in/drive‑out (FIFO/DIDO) workers on‑shift for local government areas (LGAs) in these regions from 2015 to 2021. Each report presents up to four projection series, based on information provided by industry regarding existing resource operations and future projects, and grouped according to the status of projects in the approvals process at the time of production.
