Moreton Bay 2016 Census data decoded!

The second round of the 2016 Census data has been released and as promised we have done the number crunching for you!

The Institute's Research Foundation, proudly presented by Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ), provides an in-depth look at the Census data, offering new insight into the demographic and housing characteristics of the Australian population.

Moreton Bay is now home to over 438,000 residents and between 2006 and 2016 the number of workers in the region grew 3.6%. The top three employment sectors are health care/social assistance, retail trade, and education and training. The top two employment locations in the region are Strathpine/Brendale and Caboolture.

The Institute’s Research Foundation, with the CSQ, fills the critical gap in research available through the delivery of both industry as well as consumer insight and analysis. We have recruited experts in economics to provide a comprehensive look at the data that is most vital to the development industry.

Details of the Moreton Bay census data can be found here.
