Australians who have studied science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are helping to solve the problems of the future—meeting electricity demand and generation needs, adapting to the changing climate, integrating AI into society and optimising healthcare for ageing populations.

In this second edition of Australia’s STEM Workforce, we update much of the analysis in the first report published in 2016, showing what has changed over the last decade. It draws from the vast resources of the 2006, 2011 and 2016 Australian Bureau of Statistics Censuses.
