1 Watch March 2017 Cairns

2 OVERVIEW AT A GLANCE The Cairns economy continues to muddle along, with no real directional changes evident over the last month. Tourism and employment indicators remain positive, but job advertising, property and construction indicators are still lagging. Our special topic this month highlights a slowly increasing population growth rate, which we predict to continue increasing over the next two years. Airport Passenger Trend: 0.6% (February 2016 to February 2017) Employment Trend: 8,100 (February 2016 to February 2017) Building Approvals Trend: 57.8% (January 2016 to January 2017) Population Growth Rate: to 1.1% (30 June 2015 to 30 June 2016) If this CairnsWatch bulletin has been forwarded to you from someone else and you would prefer to receive it direct each month, add your name and address here it s simple and it s free! The Fine Print: Information in this publication is based on an analysis of data from a number of sources, subjected to technical procedures of seasonal adjustment and trend analysis. Seasonal adjustment is a means of removing the effects of normal seasonal variation from the data, so that comparisons can be made of data against their established seasonal patterns. Trend analysis smooths the seasonally adjusted estimates to provide a clearer picture of the underlying behaviour of the series over time. The trend estimates are derived by applying a 13- term Henderson-weighted moving average to the seasonally adjusted data. It applies the same procedures used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in producing trends for national aggregates.

Employment grew to reach a seasonally adjusted trend level of 117,500 persons employed in February 2017, up 8,100 since February N.B. The ABS Labour Force figures are estimates derived from a sample survey of only about 500 Cairns Region residents, and hence are subject to a potentially large margin of error. Neither the headline nor the trend estimates should be interpreted as precise values. 2% Feb-07 Feb-08 Feb-09 Feb-10 Feb-11 Feb-12 Feb-13 Feb-14 Feb-15 Feb-16 Feb-17 Aug-07 Aug-08 Aug-09 Aug-10 Aug-11 Aug-12 Aug-13 Aug-14 Aug-15 Aug-16 Source: Derived from ABS Labour Force Survey data The Cairns Region s notoriously volatile headline unemployment rate came in at 9.6% in February 2017, compared to 6.0% in January 2017 and a high of 11.0% in May When analysed in trend terms, the region s unemployment rate has started increasing again, as previously discouraged jobseekers come back to look for work. We estimate a seasonally adjusted unemployment rate trend of 6.1% in February 2017, which is significantly below its February 2016 trend level of 8.0% and is back below the State average of 6.4%. N.B. To be counted as unemployed in the ABS Labour Force survey you need to not have a job and be actively seeking work. People who do not have a job and are not actively seeking work are not counted as unemployed, they are regarded as not in the labour force. CairnsWatch March

Cairns population increase was slightly above the 1.0% population growth recorded in Townsville but below the 1.4% growth rate observed in Queensland as a whole. We expect the Cairns population growth rate to pick up over the next two years as a result of its reinvigorating economy. Our population model predicts that Cairns population will grow by about 1.2% in the 12 months to 30 June 2017, followed by about 1.4% growth in the 12 months to 30 June CairnsWatch March

Allowing for these factors, our trend calculations show that passenger numbers at the domestic terminal continue to increase, but their rate of annual growth in February 2017 slowed to 0.4%. Meanwhile passenger numbers at the international terminal reached an 8-year trend high during February 2017, but their rate of annual growth also slowed, to 1.7%. Passenger numbers overall grew in trend terms by 0.6% from February 2016 to February It appears that this year s Lunar New Year growth impact was nowhere near as strong as it was in CairnsWatch March

There was a 3.2% drop in the trend number of house sales over the period, offset by a 4.9% trend increase in unit sales and a 4.8% trend increase in land sales. N.B. The median property price is the actual sale price of the middle-priced property from the list of properties sold each month.
