Profiling Forest Communities
This included provision of Basic Community Profiles for case study communities and Local Government Areas within the Upper and Lower North East study area (including demographic, labour force, housing and industry data).
Purpose built tables showing education, qualification, age and distribution of forest workers by specific categories of employment and by location for the past three census periods were also provided. See the table and map below which highlights one of these areas - Bellingen.
This data will be used in conjunction with environmental, heritage, and socio-economic information derived from surveys, interviews, reviews of literature, State and Commonwealth government databases and social research models.
The information derived will allow forest community coordinators and policy officers to provide evidence-based advice on anticipated impacts of Regional Forest Agreement decisions on forest dependent communities.
Below is an example of a Basic Community Profile for one of the Department's assessment areas - Bellingen (on the NSW North Coast).
