Community profile

Provides demographic information about our residents, the area and each suburb.


Our community profile uses data from the 2016, 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996 and 1991 Australian censuses. It provides demographic information on our residents, for the whole local government authority and 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.

2016 census data is released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2 main stages. The June 2017 release covers basic demographic data, such as age, income, ethnicity and language. The October 2017 release covers employment, qualifications and population mobility. Updates to our webpages and datasets follow accordingly.

Community Atlas

Using interactive maps, the Community Atlas includes key socio-demographic characteristics gleaned from the 3 most recent censuses. The atlas has maps detailing data on:

  • population

  • labour force
  • housing
  • computer use
  • areas of disadvantage.

Population forecasts

Our 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 the 10 village groupings. The forecasts include results in age-specific and household categories, as well as looking at the drivers for change in key demographics.
