The Mount Barker District Council Community Profile includes 1991 to 2011 Census data and is designed to inform community groups, councils, investors, business, students and the general public.
Mount Barker District Community Atlas presents key socio-demographic characteristics for the area as interactive maps. Based on data from the 2011 Census of Population and Housing (Australian Bureau of Statistics), each map is prepared using Census Collector Districts providing the finest level of detail to help identify spatial patterns and trends in the area.
Mount Barker District population forecasts outline the drivers of population change and forecasts how population, age structure and household types will change across the LGA over the period 2011 to 2036. This data is presented in easy to use tables, charts and commentary and is designed to inform community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public.
In early January 2011, the former Minister for Urban Development and Planning, Paul Holloway, released the new set of Cabinet approved population projections for South Australia and the State's Statistical Divisions, 2006-2036. These projections along with a summary report are now available from the sa.gov.au website. This is the State Government's online entry point for all public facing website content.
At the same time Cabinet also authorised DPLG to prepare and publish small area population projections to the Local Government/Statistical Local Area level projected to 2026 (these projections can also be aggregated to South Australian Government Regions). In South Australia, there are 128 Statistical Local Areas - 69 of which are in the Greater Adelaide region. Small area population projections are informed by the underlying demography of each area, the potential for new dwellings, future economic development potential and, in the case of the Greater Adelaide Region, by the strategic priorities of The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide. These projections are now completed and can be downloaded from the sa.gov.au website:
