Assessing and projecting gas effects on regional economic activity in NSW

Understanding the role of onshore gas across a range of socio-economic indicators

This project analyses the influence of the NSW on-shore gas industry on regional economic and social indicators, and uses economic models to generate descriptions of potential future effects for NSW.

This research improves understanding of the role of the gas industry in NSW across a comprehensive set of economic and social indicators, enabling insights into potential changes to NSW industry, employment, land use, productivity, and human capital under a range of gas industry development scenarios.
