A comprehensive statistical profile of the G21 region launched recently is expected to be invaluable for government, business, student and community reference.

The G21 Region Profile 2019 includes hundreds of data tables and graphs.  A main regional volume is supported by five municipal-specific companion documents — Colac-Otway, Golden Plains, Queenscliffe, Surf Coast and Greater Geelong.

The Profile was jointly launched by G21 Chair Bill Mithen and the mayors of the five G21 region councils following the G21 July board meeting in Queenscliff.
