Geelong population profile and forecast Information

Demographic profile sites to assist with population information enquiries.

Community profile

Want to know...

  • How many people live in Geelong?

  • Who we are?

  • What we do?

  • How we live?

  • Where we live?

Answers to these questions and many more can be found on our City of Greater Geelong Community Profile website which provides detailed online socio-demographic profile of the Geelong Local Government Area (LGA) and small areas (that is: suburb/township).

Population forecasts

Want to know...

  • How many people are forecast to live here in the future?

  • How old we will be?

  • How we will live?

  • Where we will live?

The City of Greater Geelong population forecasts website can provide you with information on what the Geelong community may look like in the future at the Geelong Local Government Area (LGA) and small area (i.e. suburb/township) level. The forecasts are produced by an external agency (.id consulting) and are based on ABS results from the 2016, 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996, and 1991 censuses of population and housing, in conjunction with information provided by the City of Greater Geelong.

Social atlas

The City of Greater Geelong social atlas website delivers census data in a suite of thermatic maps which show how target populations are distributed across a local government area (for example: children, elderly, disadvantaged).

There are 64 interactive maps each showing different population characteristics from the 2011 Census. Each map is prepared using the smallest level possible (census collector districts), providing the finest level of detail to help identify spatial patterns and trends in the area.

The site compliments the information we have on our community profile and population forecast pages.
