Community Profile & Community Atlas

Community Profile 

The Barossa Council Community Profile enables you to analyse the population characteristics of our community, understand how they have changed over time and how they compare to other areas. The profile assists Council, the general public, students, community groups, business and investors to be more informed about the community.

The profile presents data from the 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996 and 1991 Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Census of Population and Housing for the local government area, and for selected townships. This data is presented in easy to use tables, charts and commentary to answer the majority of frequently asked socio-demographic questions


Community Atlas

The Barossa Council Community Atlas presents key socio-demographic characteristics for the Council area in a series of interactive maps. Based on data from the 2006 Census, each map applies the finest level of detail to help idenity spatial patterns and trends in the Council area. 2011 Census data will be incorporated into the atlas at the end of November 2012.


National Economic Indicators

The National Economic Indicators Series is a set of key economic measures for every Local Government Area (LGA) in Australia. The series is drawn from National Economics (NIEIR) modeling and other relevant data sources and is updated annually.

The indicators provide a snapshot of each local economy at a point in time, showing how it contributes to the broader State economy and how it is performing in relation to other areas.

These indicators have been developed as part of the 2011 Census upgrade of online demographic and economic profiling tools.
