    Vitor, this dataset from ABS may also be helpful ( - the individual datasets contain information on:

    "Business Counts, Labour Force, Taxation Statistics, Government Pensions & Allowances, Rent & Mortgage Payments, Building Approvals. (Where available)."

    Is this closer to what you're looking for?

      That's great Allan, thank you for your fast reply. I will present the datasets to the ITForum Gold Coast members in the next meeting. It will help us to get a better understanding about our local businesses development in the last years. One last question, is there any data available regarding the economic regional profile before 2007?
