Community Profile

The Newcastle Community Profile and Social Atlas provides a comprehensive demographic profile for the Newcastle local government area (LGA). The Community Profile enables analysis of population characteristics for Newcastle and suburbs and includes historical data to show how they have changed over time.

The City of Newcastle Social Atlas presents Census data in its most compelling form – as a series of thematic maps that show how particular population groups are distributed across Newcastle.  

There are over 90 individual maps, each representing a community of interest, such as young children, or the elderly. The maps are shaded to show where there are concentrations of these communities of interest, which enables planners to accurately assess the demand for the provision of services and facilities to target populations.
