Community profiles for Sorell and other Local Government Areas (LGAs) are now available on the Australian Bureau of Statistics web site. The profiles aim at providing key consensus characteristics relating to persons, families and dwellings.

These profiles are excellent tools for researching, analysing and future planning, enabling Council to better service its community.
