Victoria – the state with the most….growth

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”.

    Hi Elaine,

    .id produces a profile for Moira Shire which you can access here – While much of it is based around Census data, if you look at the menu on the left hand size and select – post Census updates – population estimates, this will take you to a table which has the latest estimates from the ABS. Since writing this blog, the ABS has rebased their population estimates to consider the results of the 2011 Census. Note that June 2012 estimates for LGAs are scheduled for release at the end of this month.

    The profile does include Census data for Yarrawonga. Population estimates (different than Census) for Yarrawonga are also available on the ABS website in the publication Regional Population Growth (Cat. no. 3218.0).
