Free presentation on the 2016 Census results

Published on 28 June 2017

Ku-ring-gai residents and businesspeople are invited to a free presentation on the results of the 2016 Census on Thursday 20 July.

The first findings of the 2016 Census have been released this week, including the latest data on the Ku-ring-gai population.

Compared with the rest of NSW, the proportion of young residents in the local area is increasing. In 2016 Ku-ring-gai’s residents aged 0-19 years comprised 28% of the population, compared with 24.5% of the rest of NSW.

Ku-ring-gai residents are also living longer,  with over 13% aged over 70 years of age, compared with around 11% in the state.
These and other results will be explored in a free presentation hosted by the Council on Thursday 20 July between 1.30pm and 3.30pm at the Council Chambers, Level 3 818 Pacific Highway.

The presentation will provide an overview of the key characteristics of the population and its housing needs, as well as trends and changes in Ku-ring-gai’s demography. 

According to Mayor Jennifer Anderson, the presentation is ‘essential for those involved in planning, research and service-based business and community organisations’.

“By attending, you’ll obtain the latest analysis of our population and learn about other demographic tools available online free-of-charge through the Council’s website”.

Bookings are essential as places are limited; to book call 9424 0831.
