BIS Shrapnel’s new Wages Outlook Report provides forecasts of CPI inflation and wage inflation (by industry sector) at the national level over the next five years.

Long-term planning and strategy requires reliable forecasts relevant to your industry in your state. Unfortunately, medium and long-term state and industry-level forecasts are not typically readily available. That is about to change, with the release of BIS Shrapnel's series of State Economic and Industry Prospects reports.The New South Wales State Economic and Industry Prospects report is available now.
BIS Shrapnel’s Long Term Forecasts represent our most likely and central view of the future. However, other outcomes are always possible. Recently, we have developed plausible alternatives to our central forecast for all of our Key Economic Indicators, which we are marketing exclusively to existing subscribers to our Long Term Forecasts Service.
