SIBA Members will be able to download previous years results once they are collated. We will notify members when this has been finalised.
The Spatial Industries Statistics Program was formed by the stakeholders listed in February of 2011. Over several brainstorming sessions, the participants developed a sense of what information is required. The statistical intelligence required for the industry can be roughly described in 3 groups:
Whole of industry, size, economic impact, etc
Business operations, profitability, sustainability, markets, etc
Workforce development, entry, pathways, demand, supply, etc
Discussions are being held with the Australian Bureau of Statistics in relation to (1) with a view to establishing a “satellite account” for the spatial industries.
This Salary Survey represents part of (2). Discussions are also being held with a commercial business analysis organisation who currently conducts surveys in related areas, to explore the potential to broaden that work into the whole of the spatial industries.
A pilot study was conducted at some universities as part of a consultancy to advise the Queensland Destination Spatial group on communication to school leaver entrants to the industry. This study sought information on how students were attracted to spatial courses and the pathway which brought them to their current situation.
This forms part of the work for (3) and in discussions with ASIERA, a consistent and comprehensive program of questionnaires aimed at people studying spatial is in development and due to be available at the end of 2013.
It is hoped that the area of business operations, profitability and sustainability will be the next area addressed and developed in the statistics program during 201.4
