Port Stephens Economic Profile

The first ever Port Stephens Economic Profile has just been released, empowering residents and businesses with insights into the local economy and what makes it tick.
Council's Economic Development Unit compiled the profile in conjunction with Remplan, using key statistics on demographics, employment, industry, housing, tourism and business activity. Jane Perrin, Council's Economic Development Coordinator, says it's hoped the Economic Profile will promote a better understanding of the state of the local economy and what this means for investment opportunities, economic impacts and the allocation of resources.
"By increasing access to accurate and detailed statistics about Port Stephens, we can enable people to make more informed decisions about our region," Ms. Perrin said.
"I can see this profile being an invaluable resource for business owners, not-for-profits, community groups, educators, students and the wider community."
Ms. Perrin says it's important to note that while these statistics are up-to-date as of 2017, they represent a snapshot in time.
"Council's Economic Development Unit keeps a keen eye on the local economy and is constantly updating its datasets, which can be accessed by contacting us.“
