Modelling employment demand and supply in the resources sector

Assessing the skill needs in Australia’s resources sector

This report provides modelling input to the Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency’s annual report on skill needs in Australia’s resources sector.

This report provides modelling input to the Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency’s (AWPA’s) annual report on skill needs in Australia’s resources sector. The labour force projections used within this report focus solely on the resources sector within Australia. The modelling was conducted between July and September 2013, with the April 2013 listing of Resources and Energy Major Projects from the Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics (BREE) a key input.

Deloitte Access Economics’ modelling methodology brings together modelling capabilities in relation to skills demand and supply employed in previous work for AWPA (Economic modelling of skills demand and supply, 2012) with the firm’s Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modelling competency, DAE-RGEM. By linking these two capabilities, the labour market impact of major resources projects around Australia can be assessed within a broad, economy-wide framework.

The labour force modelling projections shown in this report will assist in planning for future labour force needs, in concert with skills development and migration strategies.
