Background Paper No. 02/1999 by Mark D'Arney
‚Äč‚ÄčThis paper provides an analysis of selected socio-economic data from the 1996 Census of Population and Housing for New South Wales State Electoral Districts as determined by the 1998 redistribution.

Data for each electorate is presented in two tables along with a corresponding map. The maps have been reproduced, with permission, from the 1998 New South Wales Redistribution of Electorates Report. The political party shown for each electorate is based on the party notionally holding the seat as calculated in Antony Green's paper cited above. A table detailing the 2-party vote, primary vote and votes transferred has been extracted from the same publication and included in each electorate profile.

Selected characteristics have been extracted from the Census96 spreadsheet data provided to the NSW Parliamentary Library by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The data used presents the 1996 census data in relation to the New South Wales state electoral boundaries as redistributed in 1998. Electoral square kilometre size was extracted from the 1998 New South Wales Redistribution of Electorates report.
For a more detailed analysis of 1996 Census data by electorate see the background paper New South Wales State Electoral Districts Ranked by 1996 Census Characteristics (no.1/99).
