Gold Coast population profile

Community ProfileUsing the Gold Coast City Community Profile, you can examine the population characteristics of your community, understand how they have changed over time and how they compare to other areas.

The profile presents data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Census of Population and Housing (1991 to 2011) for the City of Gold Coast local government area, and for smaller areas within it (e.g. suburbs). This data is presented in easy to use tables, charts and commentary covering a wide range of census questions.

You can export data and generate PDF reports (with maps, tables and charts) for customised areas and topics including: age and gender; multicultural diversity; housing and tenure types; incomes and workforce; education; employment; and family composition for the selected area.

You can also compare results for your selected area to the City of Gold Coast, South East Queensland, Queensland and Australia.
