NSW – the state with the most … population

Simone - Myth Buster

Simone has a rich background in human geography, demography and urban planning – a background that was useful in her previous roles in the Commonwealth and State Governments, and now as part of the forecast team at .id. From the Queensland coast to the southern suburbs of Perth, Simone produces population and dwelling forecasts that help local governments make informed decisions about future service and planning needs. She is a regular contributor to .id’s blog and has spoken at several conferences on how our cities and regions are changing. She is a big advocate of evidence-based planning and how Census and other data can inform this. Outside of work Simone is a keen traveller and photographer – interests that tie in well with her professional life and help her to understand “place”.

    I would like demographic data of CALD communities in St George and Sutherland. Can you direct me as to how I can retrieve this information

    Hi Margherita,

    The 2011 Census data has now been released, so you can obtain this information right from their website. I’ve attached the URL here for your convenience. You need to type in the name of the area you require to obtain either QuickStats information, or you can download a Basic Community Profile which gives you a lot more information.


    .id has community profiles for Sutherland, Hurstville and Rockdale, but we are still in the process of updating these with 2011 Census data. You can access .id’s community profiles from this URL.


    Hope this helps!
