The People of New South Wales – Statistics from the 2006 Census

The People of New South Wales is a major compilation of statistics on birthplace, language, religion and ancestry from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing.   This gives a very complete picture of the diversity of each Local Government Area in NSW.  Included are data on

  • Age-gender profiles for the most common birthplace, language and ancestry groups in New South Wales showing the diverse structure of our population.
  • Detailed ancestry data by birthplace of parents, giving a clearer picture of the extent of our migrant communities.
  • English language competency by age, presenting the differing levels of English language competency amongst different language and age groups.

There are 2 volumes and they are available on-line at the NSW Govt Community Relations Commission website
