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.

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.
