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.
Our community profile is a great tool for analysing the population characteristics of your community, understanding how they have changed over time and how they compare to other areas.
The social atlas presents key socio-demographic characteristics for the area as interactive maps.
The Townsville economic profile draws on a variety of economic data sources to profile the characteristics of the local economy, how it compares to other areas and how it is changing.
The housing monitor combines economic and demographic data with recent real estate sales and rentals to present an assessment of housing costs and availability.
