Bellingen Shire Council has developed a web database online.

BELLINGEN Shire Council's Community Profile has gone live on the web, providing decision makers in the region with an invaluable tool for informed decision making.

The council's Director of Corporate Services Peter Wilson said the profile is delivered online as an interactive website called profile.id and is now freely available from the council's website.

Council engaged a specialist demographics company, .id (informed decisions) to develop a comprehensive demographic profile of the shire and selected geographic areas.

"The socio-demographic profile of our community is designed to inform council, organisations, community groups, potential investors, local business, students and the general public," Mr Wilson said.

"To achieve this, the profile is formatted to present the data in simple, clear tables and charts with concise factual commentary.

Mr Wilson said the Community Profile includes data from the 2006, 2001, 1996, and 1991 ABS Censuses in such a way as to describe how the shire has changed over time and in comparison to other relevant areas.

The Profile will also be updated with Census 2011 data when it becomes available in the second half of 2012 thus providing a profile of 20 years for the shire.

He said the profile was also complimented with an online Atlas that uses maps to show details where specific groups of people live and highlights diversity within the shire.

To view the community profile and atlas visit our home page www.bellingen.nsw.gov.au and go to Community.
