Our community profile

The City's community profile presents the characteristics of our resident population, how they've changed over time and how they compare to other areas. The information presented is drawn from the 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2016 Australian Census collections and enables benchmarking against Greater Perth, Western Australia and Australia. It assists Council, the general public, students, researchers, community groups, business and investors to become more informed about the Swan community.

Whether you're interested in the most recent information about our community or you're keen to explore Swan's historical data, our free online Community Profile is where you'll find useful data and commentary that will provide answers to the majority of frequently asked socio-demographics questions. All of the information is presented in table, chart or image format, and all can downloaded or exported.
