Engineers Australia produces a range of statistical resources to inform policy development.
The Engineering Profession - A Statistical Overview
This compendium of statistics and analysis is the most comprehensive of its kind for the engineering profession. It is a great resource for policy makers across portfolios, especially when a deep understanding of engineering workforce trends is required. Download the 13th edition (2017) here (pdf, 5.5MB).
Engineering vacancies analysis
This report examines the engineering labour market in Australia by analysing the direction of change in engineering vacancy numbers. It includes trends over the last decade, and to December 2018. Updated quarterly, you can download the latest edition here (pdf, 1.09MB).
Australia's Next generation of Engineers: university statistics for engineering
This report analyses applications, offers and acceptances of places in university entry level engineering courses from 2001 to 2017. You can download the report here (pdf, 6.9MB).
Infrastructure in the Budget
The 2017 Commonwealth budget for infrastructure is less exciting for its headline figures than it is for a shift towards more sensible project funding and use of infrastructure plans. This Policy Note examines that shift and, to assess promises against action, compares federal budget infrastructure allocations with spending outcomes.
