Demographic Profile and Atlas


The Demographic (Community) Profile is designed to inform community groups, investors, business, students and the general public. It includes results from the 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996, and 1991 Censuses of Population and Housing.  

The Community Atlas includes key socio-demographic characteristics as interactive maps. Based on data from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing (ABS), each map provides the finest level of detail to help identify spatial patterns and trends in the area.

This information is provided by .id which is a company of demographers, housing analysts, forecasters and Census data experts who have developed on-line demographic and economic information products specifically for the Australian local government market.
