Community profile

The Cairns Regional Council community profile enables you to analyse the population characteristics of your community, understand how they have changed over time and how they compare to other areas.

Community atlas

The Cairns Regional Council community atlas presents key socio-demographic characteristics for the area as interactive maps. Based on data from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing (Australian Bureau of Statistics), each map is prepared using census collector districts providing the finest level of detail to help identify spatial patterns and trends in the area.

Economic profile

The Cairns Regional Council 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.

Cairns Regional Council population forecasts outline the drivers of population change and forecasts how population, age structure and household types will change across the LGA over the period 2006 to 2031.  This data is presented in easy to use tables, charts and commentary and is designed to inform community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public.
