Modelling and Projections
Details of different types of modelling conducted by OESR are provided below.
OESR has extensive expertise in economic modelling, particularly in the field of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modelling.
OESR’s expertise in the development, application and analysis of CGE modelling supports microeconomic policy analysis and decision making within the Queensland Government. Using these models promotes a better understanding of Queensland’s economic structure and the drivers of economic growth at the state level, and quantifies the effects of state and Commonwealth policies and other impacts on the Queensland economy.
Recent work undertaken by OESR using this expertise includes modelling to determine the economic impacts of climate change and emissions trading and the impact of the global financial crisis on employment in Queensland regions and industries.
Projections of population, households and dwellings
Official population projections for Queensland and regions are produced twice every five years to assist planning activities. These projections are based on extensive knowledge of population dynamics, residential dwelling activity, urban land supply and research into the changes brought by resource development.
The most recent edition provides population projections out to 2056 for Queensland in addition to household and dwelling projections to 2031. Populations, households and dwellings are also projected for statistical divisions, local government areas and statistical local areas, out to 2031.
