Data and eUpdates

Cairns LGA Data

Cairns Regional Council subscribes to the .id suite of data so that this information about the Cairns Local Government Area (LGA) is freely available to be used by council staff, local businesses, investors, community groups, students and the general public.

The Economic Profile presents economic information that enables you to describe the area's role within the broader economy, explore options for economic development and promote the area's strengths. The information presented here is derived from official sources of information (Australian Bureau of Statistics) as well as Australia's leading economic modellers, NIEIR. The latest data from each series is always presented in this site.

The Community Profile provides demographic analysis for the Cairns LGA and its suburbs based on results from Censuses of Population and Housing. The profile is updated with population estimates when the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) releases new figures. Use this profile to find out about the people of Cairns including age, ethnicity, education, employment, income, types of households and much more.

atlasid

The Social Atlas presents Census data in a visual form, as a series of thematic maps that show how particular population groups (elderly, disadvantaged, students, public transport users etc.) are distributed across the Cairns LGA, suburbs, or even SA1 catchment areas. Analysis is provided for the selected topic to assist in understanding the displayed data.
