Community and economic profiles

Community demographic profile

Council is transitioning to a new demographic provider to gain valuable insights into the local community and profile the region's population in terms of age, migration, family types, education, work, housing and relative well-being. It will also detail trends over time and provides benchmark data for the wider region and the state. 

This community profile will be a valuable tool to inform community groups, service providers, potential new residents, investors, businesses, students and the general public. 

Economic profile

An "economy" is a system of production, distribution and consumption of goods and services in a defined area. Council is transitioning to a new provider to gain valuable insights into the local economy of the region and profile the region's workforce, highlights opportunities for import replacement and captures the value of tourism for the local economy. 

The economic profile will be a valuable tool to inform potential investors, businesses and the general public.
