Surat Basin Population Report
This annual report contains non‑resident worker population and accommodation data for the Surat Basin, derived from data collected by the Government Statistician. In keeping with previous editions of the Surat Basin Population Report, the focus of the 2012 report is on quantifying the number of fly‑in/fly‑out and drive‑in/drive‑out (FIFO/DIDO) workers living 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 Surat Basin as at June 2012. These non‑resident worker populations are also added to the estimated resident population (ERP) to give an estimated full‑time equivalent (FTE) population, providing a better indication of total demand for infrastructure and services in these regions. The report also includes information regarding the supply and take‑up of commercial accommodation utilised by these workers.
Non‑resident worker population data tables, including time series data, are also available to supplement the report.
