Resource communities research

Queensland Government Statistician’s Office (QGSO) resource communities research program monitors the population and accommodation impacts of resource developments in Queensland. The program involves the collection, analysis and reporting of population, workforce and accommodation data for the state’s resource regions, including the Bowen Basin, Surat Basin, Galilee Basin and Gladstone region. Data are collected directly from resource companies, accommodation providers and other sources on an annual basis.

We provide a range of data and services to inform planning and policy, including:

The resource communities research program outputs contain information about FIFO/DIDO workers by local government areas (LGA) in each of the resource regions. If you are looking for detailed statistics about usual residents of these regions, data by LGA can be found in the Queensland Regional Database, while customised data for statistical areas level 2 (SA2) can be found in the Resource Regions System. Please note that resource regions defined by SA2 will differ from those defined by LGA boundaries.
