Community Insight Tool


The Community Insights Tool gives you publicly available data in an easy format to help you better understand your community, or the community you work in.

You can:

  • Interact with and explore community data through a visual map.
  • View data by themes such as health, education, housing and population.
  • Drill down on specific communities using the zoom function, or quickly compare how different regions are tracking.
  • Learn more about the data and what it can tell you using the information function.

As state-wide grant makers, Lotterywest and Healthway care about the wellbeing of Western Australian communities and support organisations to deliver the greatest positive impact.

The Community Insights Tool provides you with information to make locally informed decisions to target community initiatives or services.

For more interactive tools and information on how you can create positive change, visit the Western Australian Community Impact Hub.
