This interactive chart provides a forecast of the labour demand required by the upcoming major infrastructure pipeline in Australia. Data for the forecast is drawn from the projects and contracts on the ANZIP website. This data has then been applied to a model which estimates each project’s quarterly labour requirement across all relevant occupations using ABS employment data and labour intensity benchmarks based on the project’s sector and position in the planning and delivery cycle.

The modelling approach was developed by Deloitte for Infrastructure Partnerships Australia. Read it here.
