Social and economic data
NRM planning requires an understanding of the social and economic characteristics of the people required to implement regional NRM plans, or the people who will be affected by a plan's implementation.
The collection of these characteristics is called a social and economic profile.
However, there is no one-stop-shop for this information. The Q2 Coasts and Country social and economic team can offer advice and assistance on the best sources of data, and help interpret that data.
Compiling regional social and economic profiles: a practical guide for regional NRM bodies in Queensland (PDF, 159 kB)* provides guidance on:
- the social and economic characteristics that may be included in a profile
- the level of importance of these data characteristics for NRM planning
- the availability of, and links to, possible data sources and explanations for their relevance to NRM.
QRBIS is a database developed especially for regional NRM bodies to help them plan and develop investment strategies.
It includes time-series and census-based data that has been specifically fitted to each regional NRM boundary.
QRBIS is password-protected and limited to use by regional NRM bodies and some government agencies.
To obtain a password, or discuss whether you're eligible to access the database, please contact the Q2 Coasts and Country's Social and Economics team.
