.id - the population experts

Wondering how we can help you?

Access our public resources

Over 300 local councils and regional authorities across Australia and New Zealand commission our detailed local area profiles, which are then made available to the public as a shared resource for the community.

Collectively, this forms a rich source of local demographic and economic data, population forecasts and interactive demographic maps for all the local areas that subscribe to these tools.

Head over to our Demographic Resource Centre to access these local profiles, along with step-by-step guides, eBooks and other resources from our team of population experts.

Working with us usually involves a mix of consulting and online tools.

By taking a consulting-led approach to projects, our experts can get to the heart of your challenge, giving you insights and a framework to make confident, strategic and informed decisions.

Our online tools then put those insights in the hands of your team, your project stakeholders or the wider community.

What we do

Our specialists have deep expertise in demographics, economics, housing and population forecasting. They work closely with our team of spatial analysts and software developers to uncover and communicate stories of people and places.

If that sounds like a heady mix of specialisations – it is.

We do a lot of work in each of those disciplines, but it’s when these perspectives align – whether it’s over lunch in the office or around a project kickoff – that the magic really happens.

What drives us

For 20 years, we’ve worked to build an enterprise that contributes to a good society.

Everyone at .id shares a curiosity and knowledge about the way in which people organise themselves into communities and cities. We are driven by a strong desire to contribute to the development of a good society where everyone has access to housing, education, employment, social & political inclusion, culture, health, recreation and information.

Because of our passion for society, we are excited by the projects we engage in, and genuinely interested in the outcomes. This means we work very closely with our clients on scoping projects. We design projects that are pointy, practical and achievable. We draw meaning from data to provide insights that inject confidence into the decision making process.
