For those of us who aren't researchers or analysts, this simply means we're now able to find all kinds of statistics about Wellingtonians at the click of a mouse.
This could be a handy tool for community groups who want to target their services for specific people, for people who want to set up a small business or for students doing a research project.
All the information is easy to use - you don't have to be a statistician to understand it. It's formatted to present population data in clear, simple tables and charts.
Here at the Council we will use it to better understand how the city is changing so we can better plan the services and infrastructure Wellingtonians will need in the future. Not only does the data tell us about Wellingtonians now in each suburb, it also indicates how populations are going to look a decade or two in the future.
Check out the Community Profiles tool - it's free for all to use. Go to the Community Profiles section on our Facts and Figures web page:
Good work. Community profiling is important for councils and for the public. Just imagine Councils and the Government knowing how many of every service there is in any NZ community. That is exactly what the CWET trust offers to all Councils with data downloadable to Xcel spreadsheets. The CWET Trust presently uses the 2cu.co.nz website to showcase the data that you could share. You can help to make it complete by promoting the ONE STOP SHOP - add your service information to 2cu.co.nz - its free - CWET is here to serve NZ communities. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
