Economic and revenue data

As the Government’s pre-eminent economic adviser, a key role for Department of Treasury is to provide the government with timely, accurate and sound information and advice on economic and revenue matters.

One part of our role is keeping track of the latest economic and revenue data and providing briefs to our key stakeholders.

Twice a year, in the State Budget and Mid-year Review, we release forecasts for the State’s economy.  Both the economic notes and forecasts can be accessed below.
