The Australian Bureau of Statistics has released its first figures from the 2011 census.

When compared to earlier census data the 2011 figures show population increases in the Sydney LGA up 8.2 per cent over the last five years.

This census has a number of changes in how it reports information so data is not easily comparable between censuses. For example, Potts Point splits along Macleay Street so one side is in Potts Point, while the other side is in Elizabeth Bay.

Only the core demographic data has been released. More data will be released as available with data requiring more detailed processing available in October 2012.
These problems are addressed when the data is further crunched to produce community profiles comparing the various census years.
 
You can access the ABS 2011 profiles for your suburb at www.abs.com.au by selecting the census tab.

Statistical Information including some mapping is available across the entire Sydney Local Government area. This information can be found by an ABS Search or from the City of Sydney's own LGA profiles.
