Knowing Knox: Facts and figures about your community

If you are seeking funds, applying for grants or wanting to take the planning for your community group to the next level, then finding out more information about your community is a necessary next step.

More and more now, funding agencies are requiring community groups to provide; evidence; or information about their community as part of their funding or grant application.

Fortunately, there are three freely available, online demographic tools located on the Knox City Council website. Council's Social Researcher has also prepared a series of suburb profiles to enable individuals to access useful information, relatively quickly.

Accessing the Demographic Tools

The Knox Community Profile tool


The City of Knox Community Profile is designed to provide community groups and individuals with information related to a range of factors including, but not limited to, how many people live in Knox, the age structure, information related to place of birth, education, income and workforce participation.

The Knox Social Atlas tool


The Social Atlas includes key socio-demographic information for the City of Knox which are presented as interactive maps. Based on data from the Census of Population and Housing (Australian Bureau of Statistics), each map helps to identify patterns and trends in the area.

Population and household forecast tool


The City of Knox population and household forecast tool is designed to inform community groups and a range of other stakeholders about the primary drivers of population change in the area related to age structure of the existing population, the housing market, other associated demographic characteristics such as fertility patterns, household types etc.

Summary suburb profiles


The Knox Supplementary Social Profiles (by suburb) contain demographic data, population projections, taxable income, median house prices and educational data from a number of sources additional to the Census data.
