Forecasts are produced at a geographic level that makes sense to planners – gain population insights for thousands of small areas (SA1-derived geography) across Victoria, New South Wales, ACT and Western Australia.
“They are passionate people focused on one specialist area – demographics. The result was a highly focused piece of work which provided us with the evidence-base to make rational, confident and consistent investment decisions.”Stockland
Understand the types of households forecast in an area: couples with children; lone person households; couples without children; single parents; other families (grandparent/uncles/cousins); or group households.
Understand how the number of dwellings changes and develops in the future for each small area.
Age-based forecast information is provided either as five-year age brackets, single year of age forecasts, or aggregated to service delivery age groups (e.g. primary school aged children or retirees) or user-defined target categories. Forecasts can also be split by gender.
Based on a top-down and bottom-up methodology, .id SAFi is built using detailed housing development information and modelled to relevant geographic areas. Close relationships with local government and the development industry help us ground truth our assumptions for better accuracy.
Ground-level development layer
Analyse underlying drivers of population growth via detailed residential development information. The underlying development assumptions that go into making .id SAFi are available in a residential development mapping layer that can be used to interrogate development data in parcel-by-parcel detail. View as part of .id Placemaker or in your own GIS platform. Contact us for more information.
Regularly updated assumptions
.id SAFi is updated on a rolling two-year cycle to ensure our assumptions are updated to reflect changing circumstances such as policy changes, migration patterns, births and deaths.
Modelled by independent experts
.id’s SAFi forecasts consider Government policy but are an independent reflection of our expert opinion. Australia’s largest team of population forecasters draw on extensive development and housing knowledge and are available to discuss methodology and assumptions at any point.
