Our region’s 2022 economic profile – latest data now available

Capricorn Enterprise has recently updated its Economic Profile, presenting an overview of the Capricorn Coast and Rockhampton area.

The profile provides up-to-date information and statistics on various economic and related indicators including demographics, employment, business and industry, building activity, education, transport and affordability.

With a breakdown of information on resident population, labour force statistics, production and activity in the agriculture and mining sectors, along with housing and building data, Capricorn Enterprise reports data from a wide range of reputable statistical sources.

In February, the profile has been updated with building activity data for the 2021 calendar year, including a concise summary of the number and value of building approvals in the region, as well as employment, demographic and housing data.

As new data and statistics are released, our team will ensure that the profile continues to promote the latest, up-to-date information.
