  • About this Release

Presents colour maps, based on data collected in the 2006 Census of Population and Housing, that highlight key social, demographic and housing characteristics of the population in Hobart and two selected regional areas in Tasmania, i.e. Launceston and the Burnie-Devonport region. The maps highlight the diversity that exists across these cities and regional areas and are easy to interpret as the distribution of the data are represented by different colours and shading. Brief commentary explaining the main features and characteristics also accompany each map.

The Social Atlas series, a separate publication for each state and territory, includes a common set of maps for the capital city areas covering topics such as population, cultural diversity, education, labour force, income, families, households and dwellings. Also, each Social Atlas includes additional maps that highlight any unique attributes pertaining to the capital city. A smaller selection of maps are included for the selected regional centres and these may vary from Atlas to Atlas.
