2007 FES reports and atlas

2007 FES

The 2007 FES fieldwork was completed between November 2006 and October 2007.

When comparing the collected data with earlier surveys, the date used to reference the reports, maps, data and analysis refers to the start date of the survey – 2006.

2007 FES village reports

As part of the City's Sustainable Sydney 2030 vision 10 village centres have been defined that are places with distinct and diverse character based around key community main streets and centres of community use. Data from the 2007 survey has been included in the 2012 village reports, which compare the results of the 2007 and 2012 surveys.

2007 FES industry reports

Due to the varied land uses within the local area, the City's economy is made up of a wide range of industries.

We are interested in understanding how each of these industries is represented and what proportion of the total economy they represent.

We have produced a number of industry sector reports based on the data from the 2007 FES, which are available for download below.

The reports provide a review of the particular industry in detail, which includes maps, graphs and tables on employment, business establishments and internal floor area.

2007 FES industry atlas

We have produced the industry atlas to map the locations of key industries across the local area on a block-by-block basis.

The maps provide an insight into areas where particular industries are concentrated, the areas of floor space they occupy and the number of employees they support.

The atlas also includes a series of maps that demonstrates the particular relationships between particular industries, for example, the location of residential dwellings in relation to supermarkets.

A map indicating the density of residential dwellings per block is also provided.

Establishments

The City had 19,579 business establishments, which have been categorised based on the type of industry they represent.

For example, a travel agency will be within the tourist, cultural and leisure industry, a hairdressing salon will be within the retail and personal services industry and a superannuation fund will be within the finance and financial services industry.

The maps available for download below demonstrate the density and spread of business establishments within each industry across the local area on a block-by-block basis.

Employment

The City accommodated more than 385,000 employees across all business establishments within the local area.

Although the city centre accommodates the largest number of employees, employment is spread widely across the local area.

The maps available for download below demonstrate the density and spread of employment across the local area based on the industry of the business establishment.

Internal floor space

The total area of internal floor space within the City of Sydney was approximately 34.2m² million.

This includes floor area within businesses, residential properties and community or public venues.

The maps available for download below demonstrate the density and spread of internal floor space across the local area based on the industry that occupies the floor space.

Selected industry relationships

We are interested in understanding how and where particular industries are located and their proximity to other industries across the local area.

The maps available for download below demonstrate where there may be a relationship between 2 or even 3 industries, based on the type of establishment.

Residential dwellings

The total number of residential dwellings within the City of Sydney exceeded 94,000 and the residential population was over 166,000.

Nearly three-quarters of all residential properties within the City were multi-storey apartments or flats.

The map available for download below shows the density of residential dwellings throughout the local area on a block-by-block basis.
