Mid Coast Population Data
The MidCoast Council Community Profile provides demographic analysis for the City and smaller areas within it based on results from the Censuses of Population and Housing between 1991 and 2016. The profile is updated with population estimates when the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) releases new figures.
Statistics are useful to look at how our population changes over time and they help us to better understand the make up of our community and in our planning to address the challenge of disadvantage that our children and families face. The Midcoast Council Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) measure the relative level of social-economic disadvantage and/or advantage based on a range of census characteristics. Two of the SEIFA indexes: the index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage (IRSD) and the Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage and Disadvantage (IRSAD) can be selected within the data.
Statistics are often used by community groups when applying for grants and by businesses when establishing or expanding their business.
The community statistics information available includes:
- Community profile – provides census data from 1991 until the most recent census. This enables you to compare how the population has changed over time
- Social Atlas – provides demographic characteristics for our population based on census data from 2001 up to the most recent census in a mapping format
- Population forecast – forecasts our population size up to the year 2036 based on the projected population increase and the availability of land to be developed for housing.
