What the Doherty modelling really tells us about opening up at 80 per cent vaccination

Rarely, if ever, has an Australian Prime Minister relied on statistical modelling as heavily as Scott Morrison. The purpose of this paper is to highlight some of the assumption and less commonly reported, but important, results of the recent Doherty Institute modelling.

Waning immunity and the second wave: some projections for SARS-CoV-2

This paper offers projections of future transmission dynamics for SARS-CoV-2 in an SEIRS model in which immunity is waning over time. The authors argue that research that relies significantly on the emergence of permanent immunity for individuals (and thus eventual herd immunity in the population)...

A stochastic model for COVID-19 spread and the effects of Alert Level 4 in Aotearoa New Zealand

The authors of this paper use a stochastic model to investigate containment and elimination scenarios for COVID-19 in New Zealand, as the country considers the exit from its four week period of strong Level 4 population-wide control measures.

Paying for affordable housing in different market contexts

This study analysed recently completed affordable housing developments across Australia to ascertain how affordable housing project costs, revenues and subsidies interact.

They know where you go: dockless bike sharing looms as the next disruptor – if key concerns are fixed

Beyond the benefits of dockless bike sharing for people’s mobility and health, these services are producing an ever more useful byproduct: journey data, which could be a powerful tool for city planners and policymakers
