Comparisons are made to benchmark regions and the pre-covid forecast (i.e. what was forecast to happen without COVID-19). Index charts are used to show when the local economy returns back to the pre-covid level of 100.
This tool should be viewed in conjunction with unemployment and JobSeeker section to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the local labour force. To monitor the impact of COVID-19 on local businesses, see the Business Trends section.
