Online Profile Unemployment Rate Update

All public access REMPLAN economic and community profiles have now been updated with the latest area-specific unemployment rate data (March and June quarters 2014). 

Estimates for local government areas and small areas are sourced from the Department of Employment Small Area Labour Markets (SALM) datasets. For states, territories and other large regions, unemployment rate data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Labour Force Survey is presented. 

To access unemployment rate data via the online 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:

Think Inside the Box!

Box Hill is one of the largest Metropolitan Activity Centres in Melbourne and is firmly established as a major growth centre for the eastern suburbs.   Box Hill is home to more than 4,000 residents in the activity centre alone, with a high level of cultural diversity and a considerable proportion born overseas, in particular China.  Box Hill is fast becoming the epicenter for Asian culture in Melbourne and is a renowned destination for Asian food, specialty goods, services and education.

With a name that is widely recognised many prospective residents, businesses, investors and service providers seek information online about 'Box Hill', rather than the broader region or municipality of which it is a part of.  To this end, the City of Whitehorse have commissioned REMPLAN to deliver an online economic profile with a focus and branding that is specific to Box Hill.

 Box Hill Online Economic Profile
Given the high proportion of Box Hill's residents and workers who are born in China, the Chinese translation of the profile was also a key requirement of the Council.  The Box Hill profile complements the City of Whitehorse's existing economic profile.  

To discuss an economic or community profile for your CBD, activity centre, town, industrial precinct or other locality, please contact the team at REMPLAN on 03 5444 4788  or  07 5689 1499.
