REMPLAN Data Update - 2016 Census November Release of Detailed Data

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has released the detailed place of work data!

These are busy times at REMPLAN as we process this detailed data and undertake some major updates for all REMPLAN products.

The data so far
The recent release in October has already provided some higher-level insights, such as the industries that employ the most Australian’s, how often we move house and how educated we are.

Through this aggregated data we have already seen some interesting changes about what industries we are working in. Across Australia between 2011 and 2016, Manufacturing continued to decline its share of employment as did retail. Conversely, Health Care and Social Assistance experienced ongoing growth, in absolute terms and as a proportion of Australian employment overall (Figure 1).

There is also a national propensity to move house. In 2016, around 15.3% of us lived in a different location than we did in 2015. However, looking over a longer period, more than 40% of Australians had moved house since the last Census in 2011 (Image 2).

The current release will build on this information, providing the data in more detail and enabling a more nuanced view of the changes occurring in your region.







What is in the update?
This release is a big one for us at REMPLAN as it includes the detailed place of work data that is a key input into our area-specific economic models.

With this update, you will see the most current estimates across all economic indicators at the 114 industry sector level, updates to Gross Regional Product and detailed characteristics of workers in your region.

This update will also provide a range of insights about your region’s resident population, including:
  • Level of qualifications and field of study
  • Employment and occupation
  • Migration and mobility

REMPLAN Update Timing
We will be working hard over the coming weeks to update all REMPLAN login software and publicly accessible REMPLAN profiles. The update schedule will be:

REMPLAN Community –
Beginning 20th November 2017.
REMPLAN Economy – Beginning 30th November 2017.




Organise a training session or presentation 

The significance of this release makes it an ideal time to organise training or, alternatively, a presentation for key stakeholders. We would encourage all our current clients to contact us and schedule in a time for a training session, presentation or briefing to help you get the most out of this new information.

  • A number of LGAs recorded a rise in their unemployment rate.
  • In the June quarter 2017, 44.5 per cent of LGAs recorded an unemployment rate of less than 5.0 per cent, compared with 38.4 per cent in the June quarter 2016
  • In the June quarter 2017, 7.7 per cent of LGAs recorded an unemployment rate of 10.0 per cent or above, down from 11.1 per cent in the June quarter 2016.

Next Round of 2016 Census Data Released!


The next round of 2016 Census data has been released. This is an important release for us at REMPLAN as it contains a key input into your respective regional economic profiles; that is, data on where people work and which industries they are employed in.

Data at a 2-digit level is now available in ABS QuickStats and Community Profiles. However, the detailed 4-digit data that will be used as inputs into all REMPLAN economic profiles will not be available until 10 November 2017. We will be working hard to update all profiles once this data becomes available.

Until then, the latest release provides some insights on the changing nature of our nation’s economy.

Where are we working?

When it comes to work, Health Care & Social Assistance and Retail Trade are still our major industries, employing around 22% of all working Australians.

These have been the top two employing sectors since 2006, however the relative importance of each has changed over the past 10 years. Health Care has grown from employing 10.5% of people in 2006 to 12.6% in 2016. In turn, Retail has seen a decrease over that time. Taking the top spot in 2006, and employing 11.3% of working Australians, to 2016 when only 9.9% of people were employed in the retail sector.


Industries across the board have seen some degree of change since the 2011 Census. However, the most notable movement has occurred in Manufacturing. In 2006, this was the third largest employing sector, almost equal to Health Care, employing 10.5% of working people. In 2011 manufacturing still employed 9.0% of people. But in 2016 manufacturing saw a significant drop, down to the eighth highest employing sector, employing 6.4% of working Australians.


Table - Sectors seeing the largest increase and decrease in proportional share of employment in Australia 2011-2016.
Industry Sector20112016Change
Health Care and Social Assistance11.6%12.6%+1.0%
Education and Training8.0%8.7%+0.7%
Manufacturing9.0%6.4%-2.6%
Wholesale Trade4.0%2.9%-1.1%

The State of employment…

Growth in industry employment can be observed at an absolute level (i.e. the increase in the actual number of people employed in that industry compared to 2011 census) or as a proportional share (i.e. the proportional share of people working in an industry compared to overall employment in 2016). The figure below illustrates the growth sectors for each state in these two measures.



Are we getting smarter or are our HECS debts just increasing?

The 2016 census indicates that we as a nation are increasingly favouring university level education, with 36.5% of people with a non-school qualification now having a bachelor degree or higher (up from 33.7% in 2011).

In contrast, the proportion of people with certificate level qualifications has decreased over the 5 years to 2016, down from 32.3% to 31.3%. This trend for degree level qualifications is also evidenced in the type of educational institutions that students are currently attending. In 2016 16.1% of all full time or part time students were attending a university or other tertiary institution (up 1.8%), while the proportion of students attending technical or further education institutions decreased to 5.9% (down -1.4%). This proportional decrease was also accompanied by an absolute decrease, with the total number of students attending technical or further education institutions dropping from 473,608 in 2011 to 424,869 in 2016.

More to come…

These changes in where we work and how we are educated reflect the changing nature of our national economy. However, they don’t tell the complete story. This next release will include other information on employment, place of work, modes of travel to work and migration. 

To help you tell the story of your region’s economy, REMPLAN will be updating all software following the November release of detailed data.

Effectively connecting with local 

businesses – targeting is key


Effectively engaging with local businesses is a fundamental aspect of a council’s role in economic development. And we all know that effective engagement starts with targeted engagement.

But to target our business engagement strategies, and delivery of other services for that matter, we need a comprehensive and up to date database of existing businesses. This is where Australian Business Register (ABR) comes in.

How can ABR data help?

The Australian Business Register (ABR) is part of the Australian Tax Office and captures powerful data on businesses operating across Australia. Local, state and federal government agencies are able to access this data to assist them with their work.

ABR data is updated weekly and can be used to support funding applications, strategic planning, economic development, customer service delivery and engagement with local businesses. The data has many applications, including:
  • Service delivery – promoting new government services or grants, advising or regulatory changes, licensing of business activities and identifying and supporting new businesses.
  • Disaster response and recovery – identifying businesses in a disaster affecte3d area to target the delivery of support and assistance.
  • Procurement – validating suppliers’ ABNs, identifying local suppliers and trades people for council initiatives and conflict of interest checks.
  • Planning and economic development – identifying changes in business growth and composition by area, informing strategic and land use planning, measuring economic performance.
  • Compliance activities – validating business details, risk profiling, work planning and site visits.


What does REMPLAN do that can make using ABR data easier?

REMPLAN has developed software with advanced mapping, reporting and customer relationship management capabilities to help planning and economic development professionals manage their ABR data as part of their government roles.

REMPLAN’s Business Analysis ModuleTM delivers comprehensive and up to date information on businesses in your municipality by:
  • Immediate delivery of a comprehensive and current database of local business records.
  • Sorted, geo-coded and precisely mapped ABR data.
  • Incorporating and reconciling ABR data with Council’s existing business database.
  • Transparent editing by tracking user updates.


At REMPLAN, we are happy to share our experience in working with the ABR data and are keen to learn about your projects and the insights you are seeking. Contact us to see how we can help you in your organisation.
