Australia in Profile
Each chapter of Australia in Profile - A Regional Analysis is supported by a summary table which shows at a glance how key social indicators differ between regions across the country. A new feature of this edition is the inclusion of regional case studies, which draw together a wide range of data to paint a comprehensive picture of the social characteristics of particular areas.
The publication also includes ranked tables, maps, graphs and data from Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) 2001, and provides easy-to-read discussion for the general user of census data.
Between 1996 and 2001, Gungahlin-Hall (SSD) in the Australian Capital Territory had the greatest population growth in Australia.
Around 20% of the population of Yorke and Lower North (SD) in South Australia were aged 65 years and over, compared with 13% of the population of Australia.
Sydney and Melbourne were the cities with the highest proportions of people born overseas.
The highest concentration of older lone person households (where the person was aged 65 years or over) was found in Redcliffe City (SSD) to the north of Brisbane.
Areas of Canberra and Brisbane had the highest proportions of people with a bachelor degree or above, while the Northern Beaches of Sydney had the highest proportion of people with an advanced diploma, a diploma or certificate.
