We can prepare tables to suit the needs of clients. Examples of special data service consultancies performed in the past include:

  • Alterations and additions to non-residential building. Value of work commenced, and value of work done during period, by State by class of building
  • All non-residential building approvals during a period by building categories for specified statistical divisions
  • Non-residential building approvals, for a given year by predetermined value ranges of Statistical Local Areas (SLA's) in a given State.
  • Number of dwelling units approved for selected SLAs in Sydney over a specified period
  • Number and value of dwelling units completed for each financial year over the last 10 years.
    Below are two typical requests that show some of the data that can be produced quickly.
