The Central Highlands is a diverse region with unique prospects for continuous growth through lifestyle, employment, investment and tourism opportunities.
This community profile enables users to analyse local community characteristics within the Central Highlands and compare these with other statistical areas.
The online community profiling tool presents data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics Census in compelling graphs, tables and thematic maps highlighting key figures. Insightful reports on this data can also be generated for community reference group areas or individual towns in the region. Users can access information such as age, gender profiles, multicultural diversity, housing and tenure types, income and workforce, education, employment and family composition.
We conduct a biennial survey of residents to help us understand community perceptions of the council, to evaluate satisfaction levels with existing services and facilities and to highlight any issues relating to general community well-being.
