Profiling Sydney

The City of Sydney Community Profile uses data from the 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996 and 1991 Australian censuses. It provides demographic information on the City's residents, for the whole local authority and for each suburb. A profile of metropolitan Sydney is included for comparison. The information is presented in simple, clear tables and charts with concise, factual commentary.

Community Atlas

Using interactive maps, the Community Atlas includes the City's key socio-demographic characteristics gleaned from the three most recent censuses. The atlas has maps detailing data on:

  • population
  • ethnicity
  • education
  • households
  • income
  • labour force
  • housing
  • computer use
  • areas of disadvantage.

Population forecasts

The City population and housing forecasts are designed to provide an estimate of the growth in population over the next 20 years. Projections are given for the whole local area, as well as for most suburbs and precincts.

The forecasts include results in age-specific and household categories, as well as looking at the drivers for change in the key city demographics.
