Let's join forces to save the 2016 Census

(26/03/2015)

The government and ABS are proposing to replace the five-yearly census with a much reduced ten-yearly version, supplemented with survey data in the interim years.

Join us to help save the 2016 census.

What are the characteristics of seniors living in your community?

(26/03/2015)

If you’re planning for services for the ageing community, it’s critical to understand the specific characteristics of the seniors living in your community. How many are living with their children still at home? Are they downsizing into smaller housing types? What are their education levels and how many are from diverse cultural backgrounds?

This community profile is just one of a family of demographic resources available for this area and other areas across Australia. The full suite of resources includes community profiles, population forecasts, social atlases and economic profiles. You can be confident using them for planning, research and advocacy as they are compiled and maintained with the latest data by population experts, .id.
