You can be confident about the quality of the information as it is up-to-date, derived from Australian Bureau of Statistics data, analysed and presented by population experts and funded by local government.
Social atlases present Census data in its most compelling form – as a series of thematic maps that show how particular population groups are distributed across each local government area. There are over 90 individual maps, each representing a community of interest, such as young children, or the elderly. The thematic maps are created using data from the 2011 Census of Population and Housing, with 2006 Census maps available for assessing change over time.
In each atlas you will find maps of population density, age structure, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, income, qualifications, occupations, employment, unemployment, disability, disadvantage, volunteering, childcare, family structure, household structure, housing tenure, mortgage and rental payments, housing stress, and the size and type of the dwellings people live in.
