Digital factsheets have been developed by Ai Group to help Australian businesses understand economic conditions in their industries. 

Interactive tools allow users to easily find dozens of economic indicators – on employment, investment, industrial activity and wages trends – relevant to their business. 

Industry selectors allow you to home in on specific industries, either to benchmark your own business against your peers or to understand trends in your supply chain and among customers. 

The resources also provide information on the economy more generally in a simple and accessible format. 

Ai Group’s Director of Research and Economics, Jeffrey Wilson, said: “The digital factsheets have all the economic data our members frequently ask us about. 

“We’ve created interactive assets that are quick, accurate and very user friendly, especially for non-economists. 

“They will be a great data resource to support benchmarking and decision making within your business," Dr Wilson said.

The six factsheets, with an example of an interactive tool below, are available in Ai Group's Economics Resource Centre and include: 

The resources will be regularly updated by Ai Group’s Research and Economics team as new data is released.
