​​​​​​​Coffs Harbour is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic areas within regional NSW and has been identified as:

  • A regional area with over 70% coverage by the Federal Government's National Broadband Network;
  • A major regional centre by the NSW Government;

The Coffs Harbour Economic Insight Report is a quarterly publication produced by the Coffs Harbour City Council that aims to provide key economic and business indicators relating to the local economy.

Coffs Harbour Quarterly Economic Insight Report

Coffs Harbour City Council uses a profiling tool which provides improved access to information about the community and will give individuals, community groups and organisations the chance to better understand the community. The information is presented as an online interactive display in simple, clear tables, interactive maps and charts with concise factual commentary. These are updated approximately every three months.

Community Profile - The Coffs Harbour City Council community profile includes results from the Censuses of Population and Housing from ABS. The Coffs Harbour City Council Community Profile is designed to inform community groups, investors, business, students and the general public.

Community Atlas - The Community Atlas includes key socio-demographic characteristics for the Coffs Harbour City presented as interactive maps. Based on the latest available census data, each map is prepared using Census Collector Districts providing the finest level of detail to help identify spatial patterns and trends in the area.

Population Forecast - The Coffs Harbour City population and household forecasts are designed to inform community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public. To achieve this, forecast.id is formatted to present the data in simple, clear tables and charts with concise factual commentary. Forecasts are provided for up to 20 years from the present data.
