National Regional Profiles use a Google Maps based interface to make it easier to find information on Local Government Areas and other types of regions across Australia.
The regional profiles now include information not in previous releases, including tourist accommodation and additional government payments. This adds to the existing economic and social data such as income, age, occupations, building and agriculture.
SA highlights in today's release include:
The Local Government Area of Burnside had the highest average value of private sector houses in 2008-09 of $418,100, while outside of the capital city, Wattle Ranges in the south east had the highest average value of $234,000.
The Local Government Areas of Coober Pedy and Peterborough had the oldest vehicles in South Australia in 2008-09. In Coober Pedy in the far north, 73.5% of vehicles were over ten years old, while in Peterborough in the mid north of the state, 65.4% of vehicles were over ten years old.
