Advice on legislation or legal policy issues contained in this paper is provided for use in parliamentary debate and for related parliamentary purposes. This paper is not professional legal opinion.
Background Paper No. 03/2006 by Talina Drabsch
This paper presents data from the 2001 Census of Population and Housing for NSW State Electoral Districts (SED) as redistributed in 2004. Data was provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. A profile is included for each SED giving details of population and other selected census characteristics. The rank of the SED when compared to other SEDs for each census characteristic is also shown. Definitions of the various characteristics are provided at the beginning of this paper and should be read in conjunction with the tables. Information on the median age, median monthly housing repayments, median weekly rent, median weekly individual income, median weekly family income, median weekly household income and mean household size for each SED is included at the end of the table.

A political party affiliation has been given for each electoral district. The electoral districts have been redistributed since the most recent election in 2003. Accordingly, the party affiliation shown is notional only. The allocation is based on the 2003 results adjusted by the new boundaries as calculated by Antony Green in 2004 NSW Redistribution: Analysis of Final Boundaries, NSW Parliamentary Library Background Paper No 1/05. The only exception is Pittwater which is given as Independent as a result of the November 2005 by-election.

Maps of the electoral districts as they exist following the redistribution are available from the NSW Parliament Intranet and the website for the NSW Electoral Commission
