At REMPLAN we are a team of economists, demographers and software developers. We develop online analytical tools and information resources for economic development and planning practitioners in local, state and federal government agencies, consulting firms, university researchers and students. We are specialists in providing area-specific data.
REMPLAN products and consulting services apply base data from the Australia Bureau of Statistics and other government agencies. We are committed to providing data that is consistent across time periods and regions and hold the firm view that this is an essential platform upon which to base decision making, policy development and funding allocations.
Our data is transparent. REMPLAN economic models for instance incorporate the database that underpins all graphs and charts as well as the impact modelling. These databases can be copied and distributed to third parties such as government agencies and universities. Our philosophy is that this external scrutiny is the best mechanism to generate feedback and insights into how the data could be improved to the benefit of all our clients. This approach is fundamental to the robustness of REMPLAN and the recognition of the data by state and federal government agencies.
Our other driving principle is to build products that are engaging, informative and easy to use. See the economic profile we developed for Auburn City Council: www.economicprofile.com.au/auburn
In 1999 Ian Pinge, Senior Economics Lecturer, La Trobe University, was undertaking research into implications of electronic gambling machines on the City of Greater Bendigo regional economy.
For this task Ian required a model of the Bendigo regional economy to identify supply chain linkages between sectors. All available models at the time were either out of date, or applied an inappropriate methodology for the task at hand.
