AEC assessed the economic significance of Australia’s property industry in 2015-16, for each state and Australia. Building on this work, the Queensland Division of PCA engaged AEC to assess the economic contribution of social infrastructure (encompassing health care and education services) in Queensland, in particular the component which flows through from property investment and ongoing maintenance. Specifically, this study examines the following aspects: • Analysis of the direct contribution of the property industry to Queensland in 2015-16 by property sub-sector using Input-Output modelling techniques. • Analysis of the direct contribution of private and public health and education sub-sectors to the Queensland economy and each local government area (LGA) in Queensland in 2015-16. • Projections of the future value of social infrastructure investment and development based on anticipated future demand for social infrastructure to 2041.
