Understanding community – census snippets

Understanding the communities in which we operate helps us, and our clients, better respond to changing trends and achieve greater outcomes for government, business, industry and community.


2017 was an exciting year for our Research Team with the release of the most recent ABS Census data.  You might recall we developed an overview of how the different Perth metropolitan regions had shifted since 2011 in July.

Our summary sparked the interest of a number of organisations locally and, as a result, our Director Allan Tranter was invited by UDIA to present an analysis of the data and future trends at their Hot Topics presentation in November.
