Web Based Demographic Tool Aids Local Research

Web Based Demographic Tool Aids Local Research, Planning & Decision Making


Ruapehu District Council (RDC) has subscribed to a web based service that utilises the results of the 2013 Census and other information sources to provide demographic analysis on Ruapehu.

The user friendly web based tool can be used for planning, research, advocacy and many other uses that require population data.

Council has made the service called ProfileID available for free via its own website www.ruapehudc.govt.nz

RDC Group Manager Community Services, Pauline Welch, said that the service should prove invaluable to a wide range of people needing to plan and make decisions in and about Ruapehu.

“We imagine that community groups, businesses, non-profit organisations, students and other individuals will all find the web based service of significant value in support of their research, planning and decision making,” she said.

“Anyone needing hard population based data to support funding applications or in making investment, service or other decisions should definitely take advantage of this service.”

“In order to assist users maximise the value that they can get from the available information Council has organised two free training workshops.”

“The first is in Ohakune on Monday 30 June from 1.00pm to 3.00pm, the second is in Taumarunui on Tuesday 1 July from 10.00am to 12.00pm.”

“Both workshops are being held in the Council chambers in Ohakune and Taumarunui.”

Ms Welch said that Council would like anyone thinking of attending to call their local Council office to register their interest.

“If people have any queries on the service or the workshops please ask for either Katherine Ivory or Jo Tocker.”

Gordon Campbell: On The Labour/Greens Deal (And The NZDF)

If Labour and the Greens were hoping their Budget Responsibility Rules (BRR) agreement would foster an unlikely alliance then hey… mission accomplished! Because it isn’t every day that Sue Bradford, the CTU and Matthew Hooton speak with one voice, as happened yesterday.

Unfortunately though, it’s hard to see how the BRR agreement will work to the advantage of Labour and the Greens in the context of the 2017 election campaign. More>>
