ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Provides 1981, 1986, 1991 and 1996 Census data for Victoria's 308 towns, 52 'rural balances' of local government areas and the 8 Murray Valley local government areas of New South Wales.
It is an easy-to-use snapshot of key variables from the 1981, 1986, 1991 and 1996 Censuses. Variables include total population, age structure, income, household size, dwellings and vacancy rates, religion, labour force and industry. There are quick comparisons between different towns of similar size in the same region or local government area. It also provides useful information for planning infrastructure and services at the local level, as well as critical input to informed investment decisions.
