National Regional Profiles use a Google Maps based interface to make it easier to find information on Local Government Areas and other types of regions across Australia.

The regional profiles now include information not in previous releases, including tourist accommodation and additional government payments. This adds to the existing economic and social data such as income, age, occupations, building and agriculture.

NSW highlights in today's release include:

The Local Government Area of Pelarang had the fastest average annual growth rate of population from 2004-05 to 2008-09 of 3.8%, reaching a population of 14,323 in 2008-09.

The Local Government Areas of Bellingen and Kempsey had the oldest vehicles with 59% of vehicles over ten years old in 2008-09. These areas were followed closely by Nambucca and Kyogle, both at 58%.
