The Office of the Chief Economist provides publically accessible data on resources, energy, innovation and industry. These high-value resources allow the public to build upon our datasets in new and innovative ways.

Our publication and research papers also help bring these data sets to life and enhance discoverability. We also have access to a range of statistical assets such as the Business Longitudinal Analysis Data Environment (BLADE) and the Management Capability Survey that are currently under development.

The interactive Industry and Innovation Map identifies the location of industry and innovation activities across Australia over time.
