Economic Development Tools

RDA Wide Bay Burnett has invested in a suite of online demographic and economic information tools to help business and industry make more informed, evidence-based decisions.

The tools, featuring statistical, historical and economic data and trends across the five council areas, will better assist the region in attracting government funding for the provision of community services and infrastructure, and provide a clearer understanding of the challenges and opportunities across the Wide Bay Burnett.

Economy .id online tool brings together economic data from several sources (ABS Census, National Accounts, Business Register and economic modelling from the National Institute for Economic and Industry Research) to reveal the economic role and function of sub-State economies.

Profile .id is a comprehensive socio-demographic profile for the community at the Local Government level and for smaller communities within it.
