This report is a socio-economic profile of the Gloucester Local Government Area (LGA) in NSW, Australia.  It aims to inform council and local decision makers planning for the future of the area.

Gloucester has generally sound socio-economic indicators, such as steady population, low unemployment and an engaged community. Council is active in planning for the future through its  Community Strategic Plan. Challenges include long-term unemployment and managing the competing interests of different industries and groups.  A thorough understanding of the demographics of the LGA is important for planning in response to these challenges and we hope this report can contribute to this process.
