Headline Economic and Employment Forecasts

This page presents the headline economic and employment forecasts by quarter. This includes forecast GRP, Local Jobs and Employed Residents. 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.
