ACT Health has released Statistical Subdivisions in the ACT 2007-09 – Health Snapshot Series No. 1.
(We’re not entirely sure how three year old data counts as a “snapshot”, but it’s what we’ve got)
The big numbers are:
— Belconnen and Tuggeranong were the most populous subdivisions in the ACT.
— Gungahlin-Hall had the largest proportion (25%) of children to age 14 years, followed by Tuggeranong (21%).
— North Canberra had the highest proportion of people aged between 15-24 years (21%).
— All subdivisions had over half their populations aged between 25-64 years.
— Subdivisions with the highest proportions of older people were Woden (16%), Weston Creek-Stromlo (15%), and South Canberra (14%).
— Over half of ACT Indigenous people lived in Tuggeranong (36%) and Belconnen (25%).
— Woden had the highest population density in 2009, with North Canberra and Weston Creek-Stromlo the lowest.
— North and South Canberra had the lowest density of separate dwellings.
— North Canberra had the lowest median personal income and the highest proportion of severely disadvantaged people (ABS SEIFA lowest quintile).
