City of Monash
Economic Impact Model

Economic impact modelling enables the City of Monash to explore how changes in employment or output (sales) due to a new project, business or policy will impact on all other sectors of the economy. It does this by using an input-output model derived from the local economy microsimulation model by National Economics (NIEIR) to model the flow-on effects across different industries.

This provides the City of Monash with powerful evidence to advocate against industrial closures or strategically target new industry sectors which are likely to have the greatest positive economic impact.

SUMMARY OF IMPACTS

Construction Phase

The New Hospital in the City of Monash is estimated to input $1,000M of direct output into the local economy over 2.5 years. This would lead to an uplift of $321M in direct value added and support 1,548 direct local jobs per annum (1,432 FTE) during the construction phase of the project.

From this direct expansion in the economy, it is anticipated that there would be flow on effects into other related intermediate industries as well as increased new employee consumption expenditure. These combined flow-on effects are estimated to generate an additional $187M in output, $66M in value added and support another 294 indirect local jobs per annum (213 FTE).

The total estimated construction phase local impact is $1.2B in output, $321M in value added and 1,842 local jobs per annum (1,645 FTE) over 2.5 years.
Operational Phase

The New Hospital in the City of Monash is estimated to support 1,000 direct local jobs per annum (730 FTE) on an ongoing basis. This would generate $186M in direct sales/output and $113M in industry value added.

From this direct expansion in the economy, it is anticipated that there would be flow on effects into other related intermediate industries as well as increased new employee consumption expenditure. These combined flow-on effects are estimated to support another 119 indirect local jobs per annum (82 FTE) and generate $11M in indirect industry value added off the back of $29M in sales/output.

The total estimated ongoing impact is 1,119 local jobs per annum (812 FTE), $215M in output and $124M in value added.
