Online Economic Profile Unemployment Rate Update

REMPLAN online economic profiles have been updated following a recent release of unemployment rates.

All public access REMPLAN economic profiles have now been updated with the latest area-specific unemployment rates (September quarter 2013). These estimates are sourced from the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations' (DEEWR) Small Area Labour Markets (SALM) datasets.

To access unemployment rate data via the economic profiles, select the 'Trends' tab towards the top tight of the screen, then select 'Unemployment' from the sub-menu. Click on the image below to view a live example:

Chinese Translation for Community Profiles

Engaging with Australia's largest trading partner

Earlier in 2013 we launched Chinese translations of our online economic profiles.  We received great responses:
“It blows me away Tony, the translation is PROFESSIONAL!

This is definitely of GREAT value to Geraldton!
It’s exciting!

Han Jie
Economic Development Officer
City of Greater Geraldton


Initially, we delivered the translated profiles to a small number of clients in Western Australia.  Based on positive responses, we decided to roll out the translations across all our economic profiles.  Councils are finding that the translated profiles send a clear signal that their region is 'open for business' with China; and the profiles have also provided useful resources for trade delegations.

Australia's engagement with China will likely broaden over coming years.  This will include sectors that service households directly (e.g. retail, health, finance), driving interest in the demographic characteristics of people and places.  In this context we have decided to extend the Chinese translations to our community profiles as well.  The translations will be delivered to REMPLAN Community Package and REMPLAN Suite subscribers at no additional cost.
