In today’s fast-paced and interconnected world, data is the lifeblood of decision-making for businesses. However, finding and accessing relevant regional data can be a daunting task for many business professionals who lack the necessary knowledge and tools. That’s why the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications, and the Arts created the Regional Data Hub – to bridge that gap and empower businesses with valuable insights about their communities.
Imagine having a comprehensive, easy-to-navigate platform that brings together essential data sources related to regional development. The Regional Data Hub fulfills this vision by offering three core functionalities that cater to the needs of businesses:
- The Data Catalogue: A user-friendly and efficient tool that allows professionals to explore regionally-focused data using keywords or specific topics.
- Data Insights and Dashboards: Discover a treasure trove of data insights presented through interactive maps and downloadable datasets, enabling businesses to make informed decisions.
- Learning Resources: Access to informative videos, factsheets, and other resources ensures that even those new to data analysis can unlock the power of regional data.
The hub was announced as part of the $13.7 million Better Data Use To Support Delivery for Regional Australians program in the 2020-21 federal budget.
