Profile of Sunshine Coast Community

Sunshine Coast Council has made it easy to find and understand census data specific to the Sunshine Coast using Community Profile.

Sunshine Coast Community Profile is a free online tool available on council’s website that provides data about Sunshine Coast activity centres and 44 localities.

Regional Planning Portfolio Councillor Russell Green said the data provides valuable facts and figures about the Coast population such as age, family, education, income, housing, transport and religion.

“Council recognises that census data specifically about the Sunshine Coast is invaluable information for the community – and that’s why we have made the information easy to find and easy to use,” Councillor Green said.

“Community groups, investors, business and students can use Community Profile to assist in decision making, funding applications, research projects, investment decisions and business growth planning.”

Councillor Green said all sorts of information can be found such as the statistic that one in five people living on the Coast was born overseas.

“And 65% of households have a mortgage or fully own their own home,” he said.

“Community Profile presents the data in simple, clear tables and charts that has supporting factual interpretive information.

“Community Profile is an excellent tool for researching and analysing geographic areas and users can download figures and reports about their geographic area of interest.

“Community Profile can also be used to compare the characteristics of different areas including locations within the Sunshine Coast, neighbouring councils, South East Queensland, Queensland and Australia.”

To find Community Profile data on council’s website, click on the About Sunshine Coast tab, and look under Statistics and Maps.
