Profile.id uses Census data, from the last 20 years up to 2016, to build a powerful story about the characteristics of your community, how it is changing and how it compares to other areas.
Councils make their profiles available to the public in the demographic resource centre, so community groups, investors, business people, students and the general public can access detailed demographic information about their local area.
