Social and community statistics

To help in talking to local members and raising awareness of local issues we have updated our social and community statistics tool. The tool contains localised data with key statistics such as resident population, the number of homeless people, proportion of jobless families, median rent and median income for each Queensland State Electoral District.

This information can be used to compare statistics in each region with the Queensland average and can help in raising awareness of local issues affecting the community, for example when talking to local electoral candidates or Members of the Queensland Parliament.

To use the tool, select the State Electoral District from the drop down box in the model to view the data for each area and compare it to the Queensland average.
