New interactive Community Profile website

We're proud to launch a new online interactive Community Profile where you can get the latest demographic data from the 2013 Census.

Find out about the usual population of the District and our communities, what we do and how we live.

"We know there're a lot of eager people in our communities who have been waiting patiently to get the new 2013 Census data," says Project Manager Christine Tye. "We're really pleased to make this online Profile available to everyone. There's a lot of information there in different formats and we think it will be a real go-to resource for us at the Council, and for organisations, groups and individuals in our communities."

Community information and training sessions are being held around the Peninsula early next week at the Council's Offices.

You are welcome to attend and learn what's available and how to find it.
