    Brimbank District Profiles

    The profiles provide a brief glimpse into the demographic and economic data for the five Brimbank Districts. The profiles were created primarily from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2016 Census data.

    Population and Household Forecasts data provides projections about our population and household characteristics for suburbs and districts up to 2041.

    Brimbank Community Atlas includes our key socio-demographic characteristics presented as interactive maps. We prepare each map using Census Collector Districts, providing much detail to help identify spatial patterns and trends.

    The Brimbank Atlas of Health and Education informs planning to improve the health and education outcomes of those who live, work, or study in our area. The atlas is one result from our partnership with the Australian Health Policy Collaboration.

    The  2017 Brimbank Health and Wellbeing Status Report  presents a health and wellbeing framework that

    • outlines Council’s priorities for the next four years; 
    • shows how Council will address health, and improve the environments that impact the health of Brimbank residents;
    • shows how Council partners with the community, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and other agencies; and
    • identifies the approaches that will guide Council’s actions.

    Since 2013 we've been working to develop policy-based research strategies to improve health and education outcomes. This collaboration improves our understanding of the area’s strengths and challenges. It helps policy makers, service providers, funders and residents to work together to build a more successful and prosperous community.

        Community Satisfaction Survey

        We've participated (together with the majority of other LGAs) in a State-wide Local Government Community Satisfaction Survey since 2009.

        The survey measures the community’s level of satisfaction with Council’s performance in relation to a number of core variables: overall performance, community consultation, advocacy, making community decisions, sealed local roads, customer service and overall Council direction, as well as 23 service areas.  The report highlights Brimbank’s results, benchmarked against: Council’s performance in the previous year, (ii) the State-wide result, and (iii) the Melbourne Metro group.
