    Community and Planning Webinar

    Glenn Capuano – .id – informed decisions

    Glenn Capuano has worked with .id (informed decisions), Australia’s premier demographic and economic profiling company, for the past 14 years. Glenn has over 25 years’ experience working with Census data and has a passion for understanding places via demographic data and the stories it tells.

    Currently, Glenn looks after the data and training needs for over 150 Local Government Areas who are subscribers to .id’s online demographic toolkit – community profile, social atlas and housing monitor tools. This includes over 30 Local Government Areas in Queensland, using data from the past 6 Censuses and other datasets.

    Since the beginning of the pandemic nearly 2 years ago, the demographic landscape of Australia has changed immensely. We’ve gone from high population growth to zero population growth, with major economic impacts, and highly variable impacts between states. Migration patterns show Queensland continuing to grow strongly while other states have declining populations. The 2021 Census, held at a time of unprecedented change in Australia’s population, will provide a key window into what’s happening out there in the real world.

    Topics to be covered:

    • Population trend in Queensland
    • COVID – impacts on populations
    • Expectations of 2021 Census
