How we use population statistics 

We are required to ensure our services and facilities are accessible, inclusive and respond to current and emerging needs across life stages. We use community profile statistics and population forecasts extensively to provide insight and allow us to prepare broad strategies and plans.

In addition to broad strategic planning, we use this data for small area or neighbourhood planning (e.g. an activity centre in a suburb) and for detailed service planning (e.g. kindergarten provision).

Members of the community also use the data for business planning, strategic planning and grant applications for community groups and for personal study purposes.
