Statistics are useful to look at how our population changes over time. They help us plan for new facilities, services and understand our community make up. Statistics are often used by community groups when applying for grants and by businesses when establishing or expanding their business.
The community statistics information available includes:
- Community profile - provides census data from 1991 until the most recent census. This enables you to compare how the population has changed over time
- Social Atlas - provides demographic characteristics for our population based on census data from 2001 up to the most recent census in a mapping format
- Population forecast – forecasts our population size up to the year 2036 based on the projected population increase and the availability of land to be developed for housing.
- Economic profile - presents economic information that enables you to describe the area's role within the broader economy, explore options for economic development and promote the area's strengths.
