Bowen and Galilee Basins non–resident population projections (report)

Published
Last reviewed

This report provides annual projections of the non‑resident (fly‑in/fly‑out and drive‑in/drive‑out (FIFO/DIDO)) populations for local government areas in the Bowen and Galilee Basins from 2019 to 2025. The projections are based on workforce and accommodation data collected from industry sources by Queensland Government Statistician’s Office (QGSO).

The projections take into account the FIFO/DIDO construction, production and maintenance workforces of all existing resource operations and future resource projects, as well as assumptions about project timing. Up to four projection series are provided for each region, derived according to the status of projects in the development pipeline.

Please note: QGSO’s non–resident population projections are updated annually following publication of the latest non–resident population estimates. Projections in the Bowen and Galilee Basins non–resident population projections, 2019 to 2025 report are based on non–resident population figures published in the Bowen Basin population report, 2018.

Non–resident population projections data for the Bowen Basin and Galilee Basin are also available for download in Excel format.

Bowen Basin population report (report)

Published
Last reviewed

This annual report contains non–resident population and accommodation data for the Bowen Basin, derived from data collected by Queensland Government Statistician’s Office. The focus of the Bowen Basin population report is on quantifying the number of fly‑in/fly‑out and drive‑in/drive‑out (FIFO/DIDO) workers staying in the region, and their use of commercial accommodation.

The report provides estimates of the number of non‑resident workers on‑shift in local government areas (LGAs) and selected localities in the Bowen Basin as at June 2018. These non‑resident populations are also added to the resident population estimate to give a full–time equivalent (FTE) population estimate, providing a more complete indicator of total demand for certain services than either measure used alone. The report also includes information regarding the supply and take‑up of commercial accommodation by non‑resident workers.

Please note: This report provides annual estimates of the resident and non‑resident populations of the region that are up to date at the time of the survey. This information is subject to change and revision over time, and users are advised to refer to the current edition rather than past editions.

Non-resident population projections for the Bowen Basin are also available on this page.
