Local Statistics

For local statistics go to the Australian Bureau of Statistics ABS website and search for the location that interests you.

Central West Libraries also subscribes to a specialist online resource curated by .id – the population experts that provides statistics for our footprint. The Central West Region Libraries site is available as the community profile and as an atlas with maps of the area

The Community Profile includes results from the 2016, 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996 and 1991 Censuses of Population and Housing for Orange, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra and Forbes. The Profile data is presented in easy-to-use tables and charts with concise factual commentary covering a wide range of frequently asked Census questions.

The Community Profile enables you to analyse the population characteristics of the communities served by Central West Libraries, understand how they have changed and how they compare to other areas in the region and New South Wales. This is an incredibly useful resource for businesses, students and Government.

The Atlas includes over 100 maps covering data sourced from the 2016 and 2011 Censuses and also provides a brief analysis of the characteristic shown on the map.
