Community profile information and statistics are now available through an online tool provided by .id (Informed Decisions). The information presents population data in clear, simple tables and charts.

Community Profiles Tool

Who uses these statistics?

These statistics are designed to help:

  • community groups who want to target their services for specific people
  • people who want to set up a small business 
  • students doing a research project.

Council use the tool to better understand how the city is changing so we can better plan the services and infrastructure our residents will need in the future.
