    The MapStats product is no longer available. For access to 2001 Census data, please visit the 2001 data page.


MapStats (previously QuickMaps) are designed to provide users with quick and easy access to thematically mapped Census statistics. The maps will be available for larger geographies and will depict selected population, ethnicity, education, family, income, labour force and dwelling characteristics.

Users will have the opportunity to select a topic and a level of geographic disaggregation that best suits their needs wherever possible.

For each 'MapStats', a maximum of five classes have been used so that the viewer is able to distinguish each class clearly. Class intervals which reflect the distribution of the data are calculated using a 'Natural Break' method.

The 'Natural Break' method divides the data into classes based on the natural groups in the data distribution. It uses a statistical formula that calculates groupings of data values based on data distribution, and also seeks to reduce variance within groups and maximize variance between groups.

The maps contain identifiers for clients to recognise selected areas. Identifiers include main roads, rivers, airports and selected areas labelled. A scale bar is included on each map for reference.
