Data underpins everything we do at the Melbourne Institute. We apply cutting-edge statistical and econometric methodology to primary and secondary data sets, producing trusted tools and insights for government, education, business and community organisations.
The Melbourne Institute is data custodian for a range of primary data sets that equips researchers with the evidence required for informed decision-making and effective socio-economic policy development.
Economic and Social Indicators
We measure a range of social and macroeconomic indicators – ranging from household expenditure, individual and social wellbeing and poverty to the drivers of economic growth and the sentiments underpinning the nation’s economic outlook.
End-to-end data analytics expertise
Our expert data analysts and scientists provide a range of data-related services equipping researchers – both within the Institute and in government, academia and industry – with the evidence required for informed decision-making.
Financial Wellbeing Scales
A free web tool to help organisations reliably measure an individual's financial wellbeing, the Financial Wellbeing Scales are the result of collaboration between the Melbourne Institute and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
