Annual town analytics

UQ has conducted in depth research of data and perceptions for key town communities which have hosted coal seam gas development. A town booklet has been published for each of these towns, providing explanations of the interplay of an array of factors in the town.

The information tells the story of the impact of development based on historical and recent trends in key indicators.  It a valuable tool to aid decision-making in local and state government, the resource industry, small business, landholders, community organisations, and individual households.

Research has been conducted annually since 2015 and the information collected has been analysed and then reported each year. The latest town data booklets are available for download below and here is a link to the highlights of the 2020 updates.
