Identifying and tracking trends beyond the immediate focus is a vital component of risk management. This process is often referred to STEEP or PESTEL.
We track a wide range of trends, based on our own proprietary surveys and data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics plus other agencies.
Our proprietary data includes willingness to spend, expectations about financial, political, and environmental outcomes, and the relative level of future concern about issues.
Economic factors influence several social trends, including fertility, crime, and road deaths. This information allows for the development of scenarios and policy analysis, in addition to simple trend projections.
This body of information can form an input to your own scanning and we have several relevant reports.
