Micro-geography forecasts – SAFi

.id undertakes independent state-wide forecasts. Called Small Area Forecast information (SAFi), these forecasts are extremely granular and show you where growth is occurring across regions, suburbs and neighbourhoods right down to city blocks. They are used by organisations operating state-wide to pin-point the best locations for their service offerings. Learn more about SAFi.

Forecast target populations

If you are providing services to a population with specific demographic characteristics (people with a disability, Italian migrants, voters, pre-schoolers, retirees …) we can help you plan your service delivery by identifying where concentrations of these people are located now and where they will be in the future.

Scenario testing of land-use changes

Do you need to know the population outcome of a potential change in land-use? This might include converting an industrial area into a residential zone, encouraging activity centre development or broad changes to residential zoning. This is one of our specialities. We can show you what the population impacts of these changes will be and whether or not they are desirable.

Scene-setting and expert analysis

.id’s population forecasters are often asked to present to leadership teams, Boards and at conferences on demographic changes and the opportunies and threats created by these changes.
