Community Profile

The Newcastle Community Profile, Social Atlas and Population Forecast provides 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 Social Atlas presents data as a series of thematic maps that show how particular population groups are distributed across Newcastle. The source of the data is from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Census of Population and Housing.
  • The Population Forecast presents population and household forecasts present what is driving population change in the community and how the population, age structure and household types will change each year between 2016 and 2041. You can register your contact details and be notified when new data and features have been added to the forecast.

The profile, atlas and forecasts are designed to provide community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public with knowledge to make confident decisions about the future.
