This paper is in all respects identical to the NSW Parliamentary Research
Service publication NSW State Electoral Districts Ranked by 2011 Census
Characteristics: 2013 Redistribution, except that it specifically
highlights all The Nationals electorates in green in each ‘A
Table’, that is those Tables in which the electorates are ranked. A
companion Background Paper - NSW Electorate Profiles: 2013 Redistribution
- presents the same data by electorate.
The paper presents data from the 2011 Census of Population and Housing for
the 93 NSW State Electoral Districts (SEDs) as redistributed in 2013. Each SED
is given a notional political party affiliation based on the NSW Parliamentary
Research Service publication, 2013 New South Wales Redistribution: Analysis of Final
Electoral Boundaries. Using the Electoral Pendulum in that
paper, the results of the five by-elections held since the 2011 election in the
Clarence, Heffron, Miranda, Northern Tablelands and Sydney electorates have
been taken into account.
This publication is arranged by selected census characteristics. For each
characteristic, three numbers from the 2011 Census are provided for all 93 NSW
· The count expressed as a percentage of the total electoral division
population, or a subset of that population (where relevant); and
· The electorate's rank in relation to all electorates (in most cases based
on the percentage).
Data for each census characteristic is presented in two tables. The first
lists the SEDs according to their rank. Where available, the 2006 rank has also
been included. The second table presents the same information with the SEDs
listed in alphabetical order. SED geography is kept stable between censuses,
with rankings for both 2006 and 2011 based on the redistributed 2013
The equivalent overall figure for the State is presented for each
characteristic. Figures for ten regions are also provided: Eastern/Inner
Sydney; Northern Sydney; Southern Sydney; Western Sydney; All Sydney; Central
Coast; Country; Illawarra; Newcastle; and the North Coast (see page 11).
The revised May 2014 version of this paper, which was first released in
March 2014, supersedes all previous versions.
