Townsville Community Profiles

Townsville Community Profiles provide a summary of key statistics from each Townsville electoral division including socio-demographics, diversity, employment, community and social infrastructure and social services. The profiles draw upon the latest data from council and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

How many people live in Townsville? How many recently arrived? From where? How old are they? Where do they work? How much income do they have?

We provide this important demographic information, freely available for use by local businesses, potential investors, educational institutions, community groups, students and the general public.
